October 10th The Norwegian Australian Chamber of Commerce had its annual general meeting at Radisson Blue in Sydney CBD. Sophia, the president of NACC lead the meeting in an orderly fashion, and took the meeting through its agenda.
The chamber has had success with its activities this past year, and financials are looking good. There was an engaged debate on events for next year, and many good suggestions were made, especially considering a potential Christmas party for 2018. The young professionals have also been successful in their monthly events with networking events, and they strive for a membership growth, and higher turnout at events.
During the meeting everyone who came had a chance to introduce themselves and there were plenty of time to meet new people, as well as greet old friends.
At the meeting there was an election for the board, and these are the new/re-elected board members.
- Miles Ponsonby - Regional Director WA
- Tietse Stelma - Regional Director VIC
- Stig Falster - Director
- Fiona Henderson - Executive Director
- Sophia Demetriades - President
- Charlotte Bekkevold remains as the chamber's Operations Manager
At the meeting NACC started its new projects which is making a film to promote Norwegian business in Australia that will feature on the Chamber and Embassy websites.
Thanks to everyone who came, and we hope to see you all at the cruise with the Europeans.
