|Chartered in 2001, Rotary Club Brussels Cantersteen is an originally Dutch-speaking club that decided in 2006 to evolve into a Dutch/English-speaking club and serve the Flemish as well as the international community of Brussels. Expatriates interested in enlarging their business circle and enjoying camaraderie with Brussels-based professionals (Belgians and other nationalities) are now welcome to join Rotary Club Brussels Cantersteen.
Rotary Club Brussels Cantersteen was founded with the support of the Rotary Club Brussel Coudenberg (the first Dutch-speaking club in Brussels) and RC Bruxelles (the first Rotary Club founded in Belgium in 1923.
Rotary Club Brussels Cantersteen is a young (average age 49 years), dynamic, open-minded club of professional and business leaders of the wider Brussels community. Its members strive for a high standard of quality and integrity, while possessing a flexibility of attitude and mind. They enjoy a good ambiance, in all respects.
The weekly, statutory meetings of RC Brussels Cantersteen take place on Tuesday evening, at 19.00 hours in the Stanhope hotel, rue du Commerce 9, 1000 Brussels.
Like in every other
