Feeling lost in how to manage the financial investment playing field as an American living in France? You are not alone! Come join DAF-Riviera as we present Brian DUNHILL, a Financial Planner with a core emphasis on concentrated positions, and retirement planning for American Expatriates. He will share with us key topics, including advantages and challenges, impacting North American expats living in France. Past positions have led him to work in many capacities for prestigious firms on Wall Street including UBS, Lehman Brothers, and A.G. Edwards. Working as an analyst, in compliance and as a Financial Advisor has given him the full perspective to advise many on their financial investment journeys abroad.There is no entry fee for members and American guests, but we ask for your support by donating directly here, on our website.
Even though the government has lifted restrictions, we are still going to encourage wearing a mask. In addition, we will ensure the room is open to fresh air. We want everyone to feel secure in attending and mindful everyone has different comfort levels. We look forward to seeing you in person!
Get Ready to have your say!The Democrats Abroad APPI, ECCC and Women's Caucuses are happy to invite you to join us as we kick off our first virtual roundtable: Caucuses in Conversation.
In order to build our caucus communities & connect to our members at large have worked together to develop a program designed to provide a forum for members to meet at 'the table' and discuss topics that impact us all -from healthcare, to Voter
Suppression, to Democracy itself – we will be hitting topics that meet the moment!
Our first event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 1 st at 7PM CET – our inaugural topic : Democracy.
What is your personal view and connection to democracy? Recognize autocracy before it is too
late. What do you want? What don’t you want? How do all of the caucuses relate to the
fundamental problem that democracy is in danger?
Please, RSVP to attend.

Join us for a discussion on the mental health issues commonly faced when living abroad with Caitlan Siegenthaler, MA, LPC, NCC and Blaine Nomura, a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Washington.
Our team of mental health professionals has experience working with adults and young people both in the US and in Switzerland, and will be providing insight into their own work helping Americans both at home and abroad to address the feelings of loneliness, isolation, culture shock, and other obstacles that come with starting a new life in a new place. After presenting some background information on their professional histories and on these themes, we will be holding a Q&A session with the audience.
