Congratulations to our new President & Treasurer!

Hello everyone!

I’d like to share the good news! SNCA has a new president & treasurer!

Congratulations to incoming president Christian Samdal Borgen, and treasurer Liam Reeve for the 2014/2015 year. We’re very excited to have you lead our group forward!

Here’s his introduction from the SNCA Facebook group:

My name is Christian and I am the new president of the UBC Scandinavian and Nordic Cultural Association. Born and raised in Norway with some time in Denmark I have a vast amount of cultural exposure etc. to Scandinavia which I hope to bring to this club.

Me and my treasurer Liam Reeve have started planning events for next year, and hope you all will continue to be committed to this club!

Thanks for your trust as president, please comment below if you have any questions!

As the year progresses, it’s my hope that others will join Christian and Liam on the executive, and make this the most dynamic and exciting year yet!

I would also like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to Michael Huber for stepping up and taking on the president’s role last year.¬† Without his commitment, the club would have folded. We are very grateful to him and the executive for their dedication over the past year, and we wish you much success in all your future endeavours. Thank you!

Please leave words of congratulations and thanks below, and any comments or suggestions you might have as well. We’re excited about the many possibilities for the coming year!
