September marks the beginning of a new academic year – and the beginning of a new year in our club calendar. As is our custom, we have no formal speaker this month.

The evening will feature a special surprise, regular announcements, and plenty of time to meet new members and catch up with old members we haven’t seen all summer.

Our BISS Walking Tour

Program Meeting June 2017

A small group of members took part on the BISS walking tour last weekend,  which proved to be fascinating to say the least, says one member. Sadly the tour took place during the school break preventing many members from attending. Below a few pictures taken at Ost-Friedhof on St. Martins Strasse.

“What Makes a Good Life?” a TED Talk

Program Meeting – April 2017

Wednesday, April 19th at 6:30 PM

The topic of our April meeting is  “What Makes a Good Life? Lessons from the Longest Study on Happiness,” a TED talk by Harvard researcher Dr. Robert Waldinger, director of the Center for Psychodynamic Therapy and Research at Massachusetts General Hospital, and director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, a 75-year-long study on the lives of 724 adult men.

Dr. Waldinger is the fourth Director of the study, which is now following their wives (who said it’s about time!) and over 2000 children. The study has looked at the work, home lives (including intimate conversations with their wives) and health (including medical records) of a split group of men from one of Boston’s poorest neighborhoods and Harvard Sophomores.

Women’s March

Program Meeting – February 2017

Womens March FlyerAt this month’s meeting, we will hear from a fellow member who will talk to us about her experiences at the Women’s March in Washington on Jan. 21, 2017. She took part with her mother, who has been involved in the women’s rights movement for years. ” DC was amazing and I cannot wait to tell you all about it! It was such a tremendous experience.”

Here in Munich we also had a fabulous turnout with 25 AAUPW members who marched Saturday and have their own experiences of this historic event to share as well. Afterwards, there will be ample time to see where the discussion leads us.
