I recently joined the Netherlands-America Foundation (NAF) in Boston. The NAF is a charitable membership organization that promotes business, cultural, and educational relations among members of the Dutch community and people of Dutch descent in New England, and fosters business relations between the United States and the Netherlands.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I’ve been writing about my immigration experience in the past.  Thanks to those posts, I received an email from a Belgian expat partner about a year ago. He just arrived in Boston and wanted to chat over a coffee. Now, a year later, he and his wife became good friends of us and we hang out with them regularly during the weekends.

It made me wonder: why isn’t there a place where expat partners can meet up ? And that’s how the idea for an expat partners event was born.

So, did you move to Boston for or with your partner? Feel free to join us on Tuesday, June 5th from 7.30 pm at Daedalus in Cambridge to exchange thoughts, tips and tricks and get to know each other. During the event you can ask questions to an immigration attorney, an independent contractor, an experienced volunteer, a personal coach or an HR Director from Philips. There is also an opportunity to get feedback on your resume.

The event is free. More information and registration can be found on this eventbrite page
