WELCOME TM

Unity in These Uncertain Times Dear Members, During the production of the April issue of WTCA Meridian, the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic evolved and continues to do so every day, sending shockwaves around the world. I wanted to take this time to address our Membership. As we’ve mentioned before, the health and safety of our Members, employees, and those in our local communities is our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and communicating regularly to determine the best ways to assist during this time of uncertainty. Please know that we are here for you, and ready and able to lend the necessary support while we adjust to working together in a more virtual world.

John E. Drew Chair, Board of Directors World Trade Centers Association

We want to keep clear and consistent communication with you, our Members, through it all. Therefore, you’ll notice upcoming e-blasts from Headquarters with resources and tools to provide your WTCs and members/tenants (which are available on the WTCA Resource Center). In addition, we are preparing next month’s issue to provide updates on how Members in various regions are dealing with the outbreak on the local level, so that we may share protocols and guidance to help each other. Further, in response to feedback from Members, WTCA Headquarters will also continue to host Town Halls in the next month, with more frequent Town Halls held by some of the Regional Directors, to bring our Members together to discuss actions being taken in their local communities, and we will keep you posted as these Town Halls get scheduled. We are hopeful that these resources help your WTCs and members/tenants to keep business as normal as possible, as our respective government agencies, as well as those by health officials around the world, continue to work to rein in this outbreak and restore normalcy to our lives in the coming months. In this month’s issue, the Memo shares how some of our APAC Members worked through and are now emerging from the Coronavirus outbreak. Our Around the Network section features Member-submitted stories to provide you with insights on what is happening around the globe. We hope these upcoming issues of WTCA Meridian bring you a sense of community during these trying times. This is a critical time, and it is important for us to come together as an Association to support our local communities and businesses. Our mission has always been about “connecting the business world,” and today, that mission is more relevant than ever before. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to WTCA Headquarters at media@wtca.org. Sincerely,

John E. Drew

WTCA Members Celebrate International Women’s Day Around the World As we mentioned in our March issue, International Women’s Day was held on March 8 and our Member WTCs hosted and/or participated in various events around the world to raise awareness for this global day. Below are highlights from some of the events that took place:

WTC BENGALURU On March 7, WTC Bengaluru hosted a “Talk on Generation of Equality” at the Brigade Gateway campus. Multiple activities were held including a “Spotlight on the Stars” roundtable where each female colleague could share her story, a fashion show to recognize each woman, and a “Mirror on the Wall” discussion where peers shared the qualities they admire in each of their female colleagues. A special

lunch was hosted by Mr. Vineet Verma, President of WTC Bengaluru, where he addressed attendees along with Dr. Bose Nair, Vice President of WTC Bengaluru.
