Chapter News

Dear EONJ,

I am pleased and honored to announce that we have officially entered into sister-chapter relationship with newly emerging chapter EO Belgium.

This has been an exhaustive review process that started at GLC in Bangkok last May — it is part of the growing globalization trend, and is a best practice by many of the top tier Chapters (and we here at EONJ are a top-top-tier Chapter.
Many of you contributed thoughts and experience to the process, thank you for keeping it Gestalt.
The short list included EO Cape Town, EO Barcelona, EO Amsterdam, EO Costa Rica, EO Rio, and EO Belgium.
Half were already spoken for, all were very interesting, and EO Belgium realy stood out.
I was lucky enough to have managed to help run a test drive, and an EO Value-proposition presentation in Belgium last month.  I was astounded at the quality and competence of the small but rapidly growing membership.
Why EO Belgium?:
Center of Europe, NATO is there, easy access to the rest of Europe (also the best security in Europe . . . now).
  • Amazing culture
  • Amazing Food
  • English is the common language (since they can’t agree between Flemish and French)
  • The membership frequently travel to our area
  • One of the members has an artisan chocolate factory
  • One of the candidates has a beer factory
As a new Chapter, it’s a win-win.  While they are looking for EO Mentorship (we are the best of the best), their fresh emerging perspective will certainly be refreshing and benefit us.
Did I mention chocolate and beer?
Please join me in welcoming EOBelgium to our new extended family.  Check the EONJ FaceBook page for pictures.
PS:  Any interest in a “welcome EOB” MyEO event, reach out to me (Mohit, you are already on the list).  Flights are cheap, the US$ is at it’s strongest in 14 years, and they have chocolate and beer.
Thank you, it’s an honor to be part of such a fine Chapter.

JB Blanchard
MyEO Chair, EONJ
