The true spirit of Christmas is a spirit of giving. AmCham kicked off the holiday season with its Annual Christmas party, charity raffle and introduced AmCham Member of the Year Award on December 6 at Radisson Blu Elizabete Hotel.
Over 80 adults and 30 children joined the event to kick off the holiday season. Guests were greeted by Arnis Kākulis, AmCham President, followed by Paul Poletes, Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy who delivered season's greetings.
This year we launched the first-ever Member of the Year Award recognizing those members who have gone above and beyond in helping build a better business environment in Latvia and facilitating the Chamber's mission to foster US-Latvia business ties and making this organization stronger and better connected.
