An Introduction from the CACC’s New Coordinator- Caroline Bullock

Tuesday, July 27th, 2021

Dear CACC Members and Friends,

 

My name is Caroline Bullock and I am the new Coordinator for the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce. I am a graduate of Boston University’s Class of 2020, with a Bachelor of Science in Communications from the College of Communication, with a focus in Public Relations.

It is my honor to work with all of you and represent Chile in the Greater Philadelphia region. I am excited for all of the great things to come and cannot thank my predecessor, Christina Lisa, more for all of the hard work she has done for the Chamber and the assistance she has given me since beginning here.

I am thrilled to begin this next chapter of my life with the CACC, and have the privilege of working with our Board of Director’s and Membership to expand the Chamber’s network and overall scope of reach. Chile has held a special place in my heart ever since I visited the country several years ago. The people, food, and culture left a lasting impression that has remained with me all these years and is unparalleled to anything I have ever experienced before. It with this true admiration for the country that I will base my work ethic on and all of my relationships with you.

Thank you all and with my best regards,

Caroline Bullock
Coordinator
Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia

Nestled between the Andes and the Pacific, this event will help audience members discover what Chile has to offer as a future travel destination-from food and wine to history and art, or from mountains and valleys to nightlife and urban living. Take a virtual journey with us to visit our southern neighbor! The “Beyond Our Borders: Spotlight Chile” series is presented in cooperation with the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce and the Honorary Consulate of Chile in Philadelphia.

About the “Beyond Our Borders” Series

This event is part of new programming for the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, the “Beyond Our Borders” series. The Council is offering programming across its activities—speaker events, student programs, and travel (with the objective of hosting a tour in March 2022, due to COVID precautions)—to provide its members and the Greater Philadelphia community a deeper understanding of Chilean culture, politics, cuisine, and its role in the world at large.

The Council is focusing on Chile for the launch of this program series because of the robust and long-standing international relationship between the country and Philadelphia.  In addition to our relationship, which supports thousands of jobs, there is a multi-year initiative to increase tech industry relationships and business development.
