We have over 200 members representing about 50 countries (including Switzerland) and many different walks of life. Dues currently stand at SFr. 85 per year (SFr. 45 if you register after 30 June). If you are interested in getting to know us better, just come to our weekly Stammtisch. We meet almost every Thursday evening at the City Garden Hotel in Zug, or at the Park Hotel, when the City Garden is closed.

April 2017 Yes two months have passed since the last Newsletter was published. This is the first Newsletter to appear after the new ruling had made it bi-monthly instead of monthly. The change was necessary due to rising costs. However, it has given longer breathing space for the editors and contributors and the issue has come out with a strikingly a good collection of articles covering a wide spectrum. The importance of digitalisation, even well established companies, was illustrated by IMCZ member Detlef Jungfleisch in an interesting presentation, a synopsis of which is included. Remo's health article is on Selenium, an essential nutrient for human health, and its global cycle. Muthana in his article under Science and Technology section, talks about his next dream car. Sure it is an electric one, however, there are several ifs and buts. Under Current Affairs, IMCZ new member Thomas Schubert talks about Amazon and its amazing rise to a major global player. Our President Roger Brooks, had just come back from a long trip to down-under. On both directions, he stopped with his wife in Singapore and met up with a still active and previous board member, Adrian Lüdi. He wrote a comprehensive article with lots of striking photos on this enterprising tiny island. Joe talks on the wonderful ski outing in Andermatt. The Kegeln report prepared by our co-editor Roger Dixon covers two sessions one for each month. Last but not least is the fascinating world of business and finance. Christian gives a balanced view on the economy, bond and equity markets and currencies, with plenty of food for thought. As usual the humour section is packed with good and funny jokes.
