On september 27th, he members of the SACCFL were offered the opportunity to visit the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Miami Branch in Doral.

On september 27th, he members of the SACCFL were offered the opportunity to visit the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Miami Branch in Doral. It was a unique experience that started with an economic discussion led by Shari Bower, Vice President and Regional Executive and ended with a visit of the Fed’s cash operation. The timing couldn’t be better after the pandemic and with inflation figures on the rise. Shari and her team delivered some insights about the Fed’s job and the key indicators it is watching in an effort to navigate the so-called ‘soft landing’.

We had the exclusive opportunity to visit the Fed’s cash operation and a ‘tour of the vault’ where we saw (and smelled) a shocking amount of money. Truly an experience only a few people get to have. Thanks to Shari Bower and Marycela Diaz who hosted us and our Chairman, Rene Riedi and Vice Chair, Katharina Weibel for organizing the event.

On June 29 2022, the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce, Florida Chapter (SACCFL), had its first networking event in 2022. The event took place at ASTRA, a well-known rooftop lounge/restaurant in Wynwood, Miami’s hip artsy neighborhood.

Despite the typical Miami temperatures and humid weather this time around, the event was attended by 30 members and guests who over drinks and appetizers got engaged in exciting conversations. Their presence got rewarded with a spectacular sunset. We would like to thank ASTRA for its hospitality. The service was exquisite and without a doubt, we will go back to this scenic and perfect place, which turned out to be ideal for future corporate functions.

Likewise, we thank all the attendees some of which came as far as Vero Beach for taking the time despite their busy schedules to join the event, which we value a lot.

The next event will take place in September. As usual, details will be available on our website: www.saccfl.com.

In the meantime, we wish you all wonderful summer holidays wherever this may be and look forward to seeing you all soon again.
