The AIC Civic Concerns Committee is dedicated to making a difference and enriching people’s lives. Committee members like to get out in the community, make connections with grass roots charities and volunteer at fundraising events to give back to society and network with other club members. Serving as a conduit between companies and charities, we also connect our corporate members to charities in Geneva helping them build employee volunteerism and philanthropic programs.
