Dear Ivy Circle Members,

The Harvard Club of Munich is excited to invite the Ivy Circle community to join Harvard alumni for an extremely unique opportunity to speak with Staatsminister Dr. Florian Herrmann. Dr. Herrmann is the Chief of Staff for the Prime Minister of Bavaria, Dr. Markus Söder and Staatsminister for “Bundesangelegenheiten und Medien”.

As attendance will be limited, participants will have the chance to ask questions directly about events this year which may portend seismic shifts, e.g. The Presidential election in the United States, the European Parliament elections, and three state elections in Germany.

Dr. Herrmann, a lawyer by training, has a distinguished career in Bavarian, German, European and Transatlantic politics. He has been a member of the Bavarian State Parliament since 2008 and was appointed Head of the Bavarian State Chancellery in 2018. In this role, Dr. Herrmann was also head of the crisis team (“Krisenstab”) during the pandemic in 2020. He held or still holds various ministerial positions in Bavaria, is a member of the Bundesrat, of the EU’s Committee of Region and of NATO’s Parlamentary Assembly. Dr. Herrmann also serves on the boards of a number of civil society organizations.

Echoing Harvard’s Jill Lepore’ highly acclaimed history of the United States, “These Truths”, Dr. Herrmann will address transatlantic relations, a timely topic in a year of elections which may turn out to be portents of seismic shifts.
