On March 18, IAKS Nordic held virtually this year's Ordinary General Assembly. André Flatner from Norway was elected President. André is Agency Manager for Active Lives at the City of Fredrikstad. He is joined by Marina Högland from Sweden as new Vice President. Former President Esben Danielsen from Denmark continues on the board as Treasurer.
They are supported by ordinary board members Nils-Olof Zethrin, Flemming Overgaard, JarkkoRantamäki, Bjørn Aas, Daniel Glimvert and Ola Mattson. Substitute members are Lisa Mari Watson and Emma Lundkvist.
The IAKS Nordic board thanked former board members Monika Ölund and Holger Kortbek for their contribution.
Despite the difficult situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, IAKS Nordic has hosted more activities in the past year than ever. Digital meeting options made it possible to offer a total of nine virtual board meetings and seven webinars (from January 2020 to January 2021). IAKS Nordic is glad to have a very high participation rate and activity level for all meetings and webinars.
The board hopes to be able to enlarge the network again in 2021. By March 2021, IAKS Nordic counts 39 members. The goal is to be more active in Finland, and make IAKS Nordic known in Iceland and be able to have active local members there as well.
