At this month's DA Germany ExCom meeting, leadership voted with overwhelming support for our name change from "Hamburg Chapter" to "Hamburg and Northern Germany Chapter." This new name, which took effect on October 18th, better reflects the broad geographic region we represent, including the German states of Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Bremen, the northernmost part of Lower Saxony (Lüneburger Heide), and the westernmost part of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. We hope the name change will be more welcoming and inclusive as new members sign up. We are especially hoping to start precincts in Lüneburg and Kiel. In addition to the new name, we have a new eastern border: We will soon be welcoming Americans from parts of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with the zipcode (Postleitzahl) beginning with 19 to our chapter.
