Annual Meeting – 9 June 2011

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 new Officers and Board Members, and conduct other Club business. The Meeting is open to Club Members in good standing, is free of charge and will be in the meeting room adjoining the new American Diner at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm. 

Members and Guests are then invited to join us thereafter for a happy hour mingle from 6:00-6:30 pm in the Embassy’s courtyard (weather permitting) and a tasty barbecue buffet from approximately 6:30 pm. As dessert is served, we will be entertained by the energetic Consensus Gospel Choir. A cash bar will be available throughout the evening for purchase of both non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks. 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 newly-elected Board of Directors!
