June 2015

Dear American Club of Madrid members, friends and supporters, near and far!

Summer is just around the corner, a time when we wind down and take a much needed break for our rigorous event planning! As I was creating these last three events on Eventbrite, posting on Facebook and Meetup, I realized no one appreciates the two ladies organizing these three June events more than I do!

That cheesey expression, “it takes a village” could not be truer. That said, when you join us at one of these cool events, please introduce yourself to their designers, Nicole and Stacy. Their stories (my versions) are below!

June 2015 - NicoleNicole organizes all our Happy Hours and corporate sponsor events. Nicole has spent her career in various aspects of the education sector, specifically in communities of need. Her focus has been in project management and operations for a variety of NGOs internationally.

She is now here in Madrid with her husband and children, experiencing Spain! After moving to Madrid in 2013, Nicole worked pro bono as part of the management team of a Madrid-based NGO – Fundación Sanders, where she is now a member of the Board of Directors. The foundation is a private, nonprofit organization providing educational technology, technical assistance and training for youth at risk of social and/or economic exclusion.


June 2015 - StacyStacy has taken the lead for our Entrepreneurs’ speaker series.
