Carina Spencer takes over as the new chair for Sweden House Society

SHSAGM2015The Swe­den House Soci­ety of the Scan­di­na­vian Com­mu­nity Cen­tre (SCCS) in Burnarby had its annual gen­eral meet­ing on March 17th, 2015. As usual, the AGM included nom­i­nat­ing and vot­ing in a new board. The act­ing chair Lena Normén-Younger and vice chair Anna-Carin Törn­qvist stepped down. Carina Spencer was voted in as the new SHS chair, with Yvonne Spence as the co-chair. Carina and Yvonne both rep­re­sent the Swedish Cul­tural Soci­ety and have a long record of work­ing together on Swedish not-for-profit work and fundrais­ing, and will make a good team dur­ing the year to come.

Ron Spence stays on as the trea­surer and Dorothy Carl­son as the sec­re­tary. Lena Normén-Younger will chair the SHS schol­ar­ship com­mitte, which also con­sists of Laila Axen and John Stu­art. Other SHS board mem­bers are Robert Oberg, Dianne Kihlback, Mia Logie, George Nel­son and Annabelle Ker­gan. A full descrip­tion of the new SHS board can be found in the Swedish sec­tion of the SCCS website.

The SHS board mem­bers want to express their sin­cere thanks to Anna-Carin Törn­qvist, Alexan­dra Andersson-Roos, Eva Roberts­son and Paul Pernevi, for their con­tri­bu­tion as direc­tors dur­ing 2014–2015. Espe­cially Anna-Carin Törn­qvist has worked hard to sup­port the board by chair­ing the board on a num­ber of meet­ings when the chair was out of town, and by rep­re­sent­ing the SHS at the SCCS board. Anna-Carin Törn­qvist has recently taken over as the new chair of the Swedish Cul­tural Soci­ety, after a num­ber of years as its vice chair, and we wish her the best of luck in her new position.

Activ­i­ti­ties of the SHS board dur­ing the year 2014–2015 included:

  • Award­ing the Karl Ståhl Schol­ar­ship to Hanna Mac­Far­lane and Sebas­t­ian Gitt. They both received $1,000 to sup­port their aca­d­e­mic stud­ies in nurs­ing and engineering.
  • Donat­ing $3,041.01 to the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre to sup­port an upgrade of the wi-fi network
  • Donat­ing $2,122.40 to the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre to sup­port the pur­chase of an Auto­mated Exter­nal Defibrillator.
  • Updat­ing the SHS sec­tion of the SCCS website.
  • Enter­ing the world of social media by cre­at­ing and admin­is­ter­ing an offi­cial SHS Face­book web­site.
  • Approv­ing SHS mem­ber­ship of the Wallenberg-Sugihara Civil Courage Soci­ety (WSCCS).
  • Per­form­ing a strate­gic plan­ning ses­sion for the SHS and its direc­tion dur­ing the next 20 years.

Spring activ­i­ties of the SHS Board will be admin­is­ter­ing the appli­ca­tion process of three SHS awards (the Karl Ståhl Award, the SHS Culi­nary Award & the SHS Trade Award), and to iden­tify a Swedish team of vol­un­teers who will help out dur­ing the Mid­sum­mer Fes­ti­val 2015 (June 20–21).
