CIC Diplomatic Dinner – EU Ambassador Melita Gabrič

May 17, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST

$65.00

Join us in the South Room of the Sheraton Cavalier downtown as CIC Saskatoon hosts Her Excellency Dr. Melita Gabrič, Ambassador of the European Union to Canada, for dinner and presentation.

Dr. Gabrič will be speaking on the topic of “The EU in the Face of Geopolitical Challenges”. Given the ever-increasing role of the EU in protecting global order and security, the factors facing the Union have become increasingly important to us, most notably in terms of Saskatchewan business collaborations.

This is a rare opportunity to converse directly with the Ambassador, as well as to meet and reconnect with business and policy leaders, including the Honorary Consuls, in the Saskatoon region.
Itinerary:

6:00 PM – Meet and greet; cash bar available
6:30 PM – Dinner, with a presentation from the Ambassador near the end

Note: deadline for dinner reservations is 4:00 PM on Friday, May 12.
