Sedona AZ (May 23, 2013) – Each year Rotary International has sponsored Group Study Exchanges with young professionals from nations around the world. This month the Rotary Clubs of Sedona hosted a team from Bremen, Germany. While in Sedona the German team enjoyed sightseeing and hiking in the Red Rocks while meeting with Rotarians and local business leaders in similar lines of business.
Team members consisted of Steffen Hawranek, Banking—Business Consultant; Olga Magunia, Banking and Law; Bianca Niemieczek, Health Insurance; Jochen Richter, whose background is in Electronics and Eric Takenberg, Real Estate.
A Rotarian team leader and four non-Rotarian team members from Germany traveled to Arizona for a several week cultural exchange. The team visited greater Phoenix along with the Western Arizona, Grand Canyon, Sedona and Prescott areas. A similar team from Arizona will experience a reciprocal visit to Germany in 2013.
