 Expat Families - The Core of Every Expat Community
We value expat families because we believe them to be the heart of the community as well as the central focus of our work. That is why we would like to bring them together more often and keep in touch with their complex knowledge and experience. Read more about what the BEC and the City of Brno have to offer to expats and their family members.

BEC Advisory Board

We are still looking for people who would help us to propose & introduce new services and engage BEC in making Brno more international. As our small team has only limited scope of knowledge & contacts we have recently founded the informal Advisory Board. Its role is mainly bringing the external view to our strategic planning and the larger brainpower for adapting our services to the needs of the increasing number of foreign employees in the region.
