Thank you to all of our guests and our inspiring panelists Kristiina Hiukka, Martin Lundgren and Monica Langfeldt for sharing your experiences and take-aways as Nordic business owners. Special thanks to our moderator Petra Hilleberg and to the Swedish Club.

SACC-Seattle Annual Meeting 2019

Thank you to all our members and some new faces that joined us yesterday evening for SACC-Seattle’s annual meeting. We had the pleasure to be hosted by the impressive Nordic Museum and got a tour of their new exhibition “The Vikings Begin” before the meeting started.

The board presented results for 2018, and formally elected the 2019 board of directors. In 2019, Rebecka Churchill, our former Marketing Director, will serve as President and Martin Lundgren, our former President, will serve as Vice President. Rikard Lind, Tor Jernudd, Magnus Danielsson and Anna Assarsson will continue serving on the board, while Petra Hilleberg and Tina Bergman are stepping down to focus on new opportunities. Thank you, Petra and Tina, for you fantastic work with SACC-Seattle over many years.

We are also excited to welcome three new members to the board of 2019; Beshir Abdella, Charlotte Brekkan and Jacob Häger.

Stay tuned for further presentations of them!
