February 2023

Thank you to everyone who participated in our New Year's Fika with the Ambassador of Sweden. Please click this link for a short snippet of her remarks. This spring is important for Sweden as during the first six months of 2023, Sweden holds the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. This means that Sweden leads the work in the Council. For more information about the priorities during the Presidency of the Council please click here.

The more we get together the happier we will be. SACC GA provides great opportunities to make valuable connections. For that reason, we will start quarterly informal Happy Hour gatherings. The first one will take place on February 27 in midtown. We hope to see you there and please keep your eyes open for additional dates.
