Committee on Moravia will be composed of business leaders who are located in the region and who have a good contact network in the business, political and academic communities. The role of this committee will be to gather and compare notes on economic developments, and set priorities for building the physical and human resource infrastructure in the region. We will then work on those priorities with local, regional and national governments. Agenda for the meeting: As part of our annual Thanksgiving Ball, members and guests of the American Chamber of Commerce in the Czech Republic contributes money through a silent auction to benefit worthy causes. We devote these funds to providing elementary schools throughout the country with language laboratories so that schoolchildren are better prepared for the European and global environment in which they will spend their working lives. This project is called One World, Many Voices, The funds are usually spent on purchasing a library of books and electronic equipment including computers and software to facilitate the learning of foreign languages. This year, all donations made during the Silent Auction will help to provide students in Ostrava with the equipment they need to build a solid base for their future. At our meeting, we will discuss which schools from the list we got from the City of Ostrava should get the money.
