The Club aims to holistically contribute to the professional, educational, cultural, nonprofit, and social development of Bulgarians and friends of Bulgaria who live in the USA through a set of events, programs and other club activities. Anyone who wants to participate in the club is welcome to join!

The organization’s main programming consists of the following:

– Professional Development Events: We organize a variety of events, at which members share professional experiences, create new connections and give and receive career advice. Events include annual networking gatherings, resume and interview tutorials, panels with industry experts and entrepreneurs, LinkedIn workshops and other valuable career-related events.

– Social Gatherings: The Club offers social gatherings for members to get to know one another, preserve and promote the Bulgarian culture, and create a sense of community among the professionals.

– Cultural Projects: We support projects that promote non-political civil-society activities and contribute to Bulgarian education, entrepreneurship, nonprofit, civil and other initiatives that benefit Bulgaria.
