The Northwest Multilateral Association, Chamber, and Hub for Economic Networking (NW MACHEN) is the international business, trade, and development program of GERN NW.
The mission of NW MACHEN is to support and promote international business, trade, and development between the Pacific Northwest and the German-speaking countries and regions of Europe.
We accomplish this mission by working with individuals, organizations, agencies, companies, and universities to developing valuable resources and unique programs that provide value to our members and constituents.

In our association function, we help our members connect, learn, and share best practices around international business, trade, and development.

In our chamber function, we work with our members to help promote international business, trade, and development in general and help them address common barriers.

In our hub function, we strive to collect and share the best information and resources on international business, trade, and development.

We are finalizing the NW MACHEN program elements throughout the Fall of 2013 with the goal of launching the program fully in Winter of 2014.
