We Will Persevere - American Int'l Club of Rome looks to support its community, business, and social relationships during and after this difficult time. Let's do our part, stand together and overcome.
A Message from the President:
Today we face an unprecedented challenge, one we can’t see and one that knows no borders, so we look to our families, governments, and communities to unite so together we can overcome this obstacle. Let us all take a moment to look not at what challenges we face but what opportunity has been given in the short term, precious quality time with our families and close friends.
While governments and medical workers work tirelessly to help protect society, take advantage of the time given to focus on family, friends, and self. Read that book you’ve been putting off, call that friend you promised to catch up with and hug a loved one you’ve been too busy to spend time with.
We are strong. Collective humanity is stronger than any challenge that can be affronted. We have technology and science to see the invisible. Society will change for the better, will come out stronger and more united than before.
American Int’l Club wishes everyone a safe and healthy road ahead through this collective challenge. Following the mandated protocol, we will not hold any gathering until further notice.
To do our part, we will send a weekly email highlighting links from various government and news sources to help sift through the mountains of information. We will organize a virtual conference soon that can be accessed online. Our Board of Directors will be available to help answer questions from our community as best as we can at firstname.lastname@example.org.
