OPINION
It has come the time to say goodbye to yet another intern. It was a pleasure to have Henrietta here and we wish her the best in the future, where ever it may be. It is always a bittersweet moment to let these amazing young people go, but luckily we have our new intern Janette already here, and we want to give her a big welcome to the sunny state of Florida. 

I would also like to take the time to thank you FinnsConnect South Florida for organizing a great Suomi 100 Vappu Picnic with us. The turnout was great and we had a blast. Thank you also for everybody who came! If you missed it, our next event is on May 18th at the Design Ns Leather showroom together with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Norwegian Chamber of Commerce. Read more from the upcoming events below. We hope to see you all there!

Have a great May everyone!

Yours truly,
Esa Jokela
FACC President
