When and most importantly why did you join the AIC?

I joined in  1964. Being back in Geneva , after being 3 years in the States and one year in Asia, I wanted to remain in touch with US citizens . Furthermore I had some good Genevese friends who were already members of the Club .I was also attracted by the quality of the luncheon speakers.On top of it I was impressed by the friendly attitude of US members towards Swiss citizens.
Having been 2 years vice-president and remaining on the Executive Committee are also for me very rewarding opportunities to participate more closely to the activities of the Club.
