For over 100 years the Belgian-American Chamber of Commerce has helped Belgian and European companies do business with the USA and has helped them grow in the United States. Founded after the end of World War I in 1919 by Belgian and American business professionals, the Chamber has acted as a bridge between both continents, bringing together a transatlantic community, and providing guidance to entrepreneurs growing their businesses in the US. The organization has changed with the times and adapted to the needs of their members, ever-evolving. To commemorate 100 years of transatlantic business with lots of ups and downs and changes at the Chamber, it was decided to create a historical commemorative book for guests of the Centennial event, to take home as a token of appreciation and as a piece of history.
After months of going through the BelCham archives, located at the NYC public Library, a comprehensive history was written, accompanied by images and overlapping illustrations, creating dynamism in the book and leading the reader through BelCham's history. A lovely concise history book to remember the past and celebrate the future of the Belgian-American Chamber of Commerce.
