2009 Annual Meeting – 04 June 2009

American Club of Sweden logo

Members of The American Club of Sweden are invited to our Club’s Annual Meeting to present last year’s results, elect a new Board of Directors and conduct other Club business. The Meeting is open to Club Members in good standing, is free of charge and will be held in the conference room on the lower level of Volvo Cars’ Showroom. Advanced reservations are required per the instructions below. This notice of the Annual Meeting has been sent in compliance with the Club bylaws, and is also available on our website at www.americanclub.se.

Members and Guests are invited to join us for a unique opportunity to “Rock!” during Bruce Springsteen’s Stockholm tour that week. Photographer Jan M. Lundahl has followed Springsteen tours for nine years, and is holding his first-ever Stockholm exhibition at Volvo’s Showroom, to coincide with The Boss’ concert at Globen.

With Springsteen songs in the background, Members and Guests at American Club Rocks! will be treated to Jan’s stories over a welcome drink, before he dashes off to shoot the evening’s concert. We will then enjoy a warm and sunny (?) Stockholm evening on the terrace overlooking Kungsträdgården, a light dinner buffet and the company of Club Members and Guests. A cash bar will also be available.

This will be an excellent opportunity for Members to introduce friends and colleagues to The American Club of Sweden, and for those considering membership to meet our Members and new Board of Directors!
