On Tuesday, October 11, 2022 the Oman American Business Center hosted one of their most popular networking events, Taco Tuesday, to recognize former Executive Director, Rebecca Olson, and her 5 years of dedication to the OABC. The evening was hosted by the U.S. Embassy Muscat’s Deputy Chief of Mission, Jay Munir. More than 70 members spent the evening networking while enjoying a delicious Taco Bar provided by Los Amigos Mexican Kitchen.
Rebecca’s contributions to the OABC were recognized by Ali Daud, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the OABC, Vice President of the OABC, Fouad Eid and DCM Jay Munir. During her tenure, Rebecca, drastically reshaped the OABC. She more than doubled membership and tripled the number of annual events. She also extended the reach of the OABC by joining AmCham MENA and forming a partnership with AmCham GCC. The Board of Directors presented Rebecca with artwork done by Omani artist Safiya Al Bahlani, who was the keynote speaker at OABC’s Iftar earlier this year.
The evening was also supported by OUA. And a few lucky OABC members won fantastic raffle prizes donated by Intercontinental Muscat, Talabat Oman and Los Amigos Mexican Kitchen.
