Keeping the MAABN Momentum Going

Dear Members and Friends,

On February 6th, the International Circle of the Friends of the MUCEM, a joint venture between the MAABN and the Amis du MUCEM, organized a special VIP visit of the “After Babel – Translate” exhibition at the MUCEM with the exhibit’s creator Barbara Cassin as guide.

On February 7th, we enjoyed our second Language Apéro at the World Trade Center Marseille Provence, organized in partnership with CoWork’In World Trade Center. A third Language Apéro at the WTCMP will be organized in March.

On March 15th at the IAU in Aix, Eric Lelouch of the Accor Group of hotels will be giving a talk on tourism for an MAABN evening organized in partnership with the IAU.

On March 30th, our newly-created Business Club will host a lunch for English-speaking business leaders at the Cercle des Nageurs in Marseille. The Deputy Mayor of Marseille, Didier Parakian, will be our keynote speaker.

As you can see a lot is happening… and will continue to happen with your support. Your membership fees enable us to pay the various expenses that such events incur: communications, security, food and drink, administrative fees, VIP invitations and so on. By subscribing to membership you are also helping the MAABN represent Marseille-Provence’s English-speaking community through our different partnerships and special links with the US and British Embassies and Consulates, the City of Marseille, the Conseil Départemental, the Académie Aix-Marseille, the CCIMP, the UCCCAB, the FBCCI and AmCham.

We have kept membership fees at the same rates for the last three years. Benefit by joining now or renewing your membership if you haven’t already done so. Go to the website, click on “Join the MAABN” and scroll down to the secure payment tool. If you prefer to pay by cheque, please send to our new address: Mediterranean Anglo American Business Network, World Trade Center Marseille Provence, 2 rue Henri Barbusse, 13241 Marseille Cedex 01


The MAABN exists for its members but cannot function without their financial support. Please help us by being a fully paid-up member for 2017.
