January 2023
We have a great year behind us and an exciting year ahead of us!

A huge thank you to our members for supporting our mission of promoting trade, investments, and business opportunities between Sweden and Georgia. 
Thank you for attending our annual Lucia Gala. As usual, our Annual Lucia was a premium event that gathered members, partners, as well as local and national officials within the Swedish-American community in Georgia. We also thank our sponsors for their support of this festive event.

SACC GA had a great 2022 and we are looking forward to a fantastic 2023!

Our Sweden Day event was held in June at the historic Mary Gay House in Decatur. The Swedish mens choir Vasa Drängar performed traditional Swedish songs as well as a much-appreciated Ukrainian folk song.

Our Dutch-Swedish golf tournament took place on a beautiful day in October. Our annual golf tournament is played in a scramble format and provides great opportunities to network with members of both chambers.
Bonnie and Gary Bruce from PDI came all the way to Atlanta from sunny Florida to share their love for Pickleball. It gave us a great way to network and to make new connections. We are hoping we will have an opportunity to repeat this event in 2023.
SACC's flagship event SACC Summit was hosted by SACC Florida in November. This event gathered business leaders and entrepreneurs together with representatives from 20 regional Swedish-American Chambers of Commerce. SACC Summit 2023 will take place in September in Detroit.

This year our Swedish trainee Lina Nashabet re-ignited our Young Professionals group. This section of SACC GA serves the younger employees at our member companies and is a great way to network and make personal connections for those who are new in town. One of the most popular gatherings was a tour of the manufacturing facility of SACC GA member company Greenboom.

We ended the year with our 35th Annual Lucia Gala. It is a festive event in an upscale locale. It features a lucia procession and traditional Swedish food and as always it is a great honor for us to share this beautiful tradition with SACC GA members and friends.
Best Regards,
Ida Pond
Executive Director SACC GA
