Economist, teacher, presidential candidate, and now guest of honor at The American Club’s political lunches, a series of events organized by the prestigious organization in cooperation with The Essential, showcasing the movers and shakers in the Argentine political landscape of 2019. José Luis Espert, candidate from the Frente Despertar, will be at the Club on May 15th to share his views on the current state of the country as well as his perspectives looking forward to the upcoming elections later this year. The event will be taking place at 1 PM on the club’s incredible terrace located in the 10th floor of Viamonte 1133, right across the street from the Teatro Colón.
The event marks the second in a series of lunches organized by The American Club, aiming to offer a platform for different political and economic influencers to offer their points of view at the political crossroads that lay before the Argentine people during this crucial election year. The Club, in partnership with The Essential, kicked off the series last April 25th in a big way, with Federico Pinedo, Provisional President of the National Senate and member of the Propuesta Republicana (PRO) party. “The event with Senator Pinedo was a success from both a quality standpoint as well as given the number of people who joined us that day,” explained Robert Urban, president of The American Club, also adding that “turnout exceeded our expectations.”
“Both members and guests were not only pleased to see a figure of such importance as Senator Pinedo speak in our Club, but they also expressed their enjoyment in the sense of camaraderie and good fellowship that they shared with others before, during and after the speeches,” expressed Urban. The American Club has always enjoyed a close relationship with Argentina’s political and economic experts in its more that 100 years of existence. The institution’s main goal has always been to generate a rich cultural exchange with the English-speaking community and, with the current state of relations between the US and Argentina at an all-time high and the electoral year as a backdrop, it’s only fitting that the Club serve as a space for these encounters to come to fruition. “It clearly meant a lot to many to see the American Club once again as an important center for this type of activity,” Urban concluded.
