FAUSA was well-represented at the IM in Luxembourg in May. Sue Frick, philanthropy chair, Suzanne MacNeil, FAWCO liaison, and past-president Rick Chizmadia were together at the three-day conference, presented at several sessions, and met individually with FAWCO members who asked about transitioning from expat to repat.
We also cheered on Rick when he was honored with FAWCO’s Caroline Curtis Brown Spirit Award, an honor that recognizes him as a trailblazer when he became the first man to join AWC Zurich and for his years of service to, and support for, FAWCO. In addition to the award, Rick also accepted a seat on FAWCO’s DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging) committee. Interested in learning more? The DEIB team has posted a video with more information.

All told, the Target 4.0 fundraising provided $177,000 to Rhobi and the girls and women she works with in Tanzania.
