Communication and exchange are crucial to transatlantic alumni work. With this object in mind, the DAZ Stuttgart invited the major German-American alumni associations to a networking and strategy meeting.

The annual Winterball is one of the most important national events of the German Fulbright Alumni Association. However, it’s not just one event – it’s a weekend full of events. Over the course of three days, we enjoy tours of the respective city that hosts the event, a brunch meeting, a Get-Together in a tavern or restaurant, the general members’ assembly where we elect the new board, and, finally, the Winterball.
