Business Meeting, SAHS, Washington, Swiss Immigrants
At 10:00 A.M., President Karl I. Niederer called the business meeting to order. He expressed the Society's thanks to His Excellency, Ambassador Alfred Defago for hosting this meeting and to staff Member Ms. Florence Nicole for having so efficiently taken care of all the local arrangements. The Society has traditionally met here in Washington every third year. Our Washington meetings also mark the conclusion of outgoing officers' three-year terms and the election of new officers, so meeting in this place has a special significance. Mr. Niederer also expressed his deep appreciation to Ambassador and Mrs. Defago for welcoming us to their residence for lunch, which is provided courtesy of the Embassy.
