GABA has been a great networking support to me ever since I moved to the Bay Area. I would like to give back to the German-US community, foster the international network, and have the community benefit from the content-rich contributions GABA stands for. This forms part of my general goal to foster the German-American relationship with various activities and my active memberships in influential German-American organizations.”
