DUCC Newsletter december 2017

 

Dear Members and Readers,

CHANGING TIMES

As you may have heard, Chamber Chairman Louis Wheeler and I have, for several months now, been working together with Committee and management of the Danish Club towards bringing the two organisations together and forming a stronger and united organisation - The Danish-UK Association.

On the 29th November, Extraordinary General Meetings were held by both organisations and we are pleased to inform you that the votes for the merger were unanimous. So from the Chamber's point of view it is a "go". The rules of the Danish Club require them to have a second EGM before we can finally go ahead, adopt the new Articles of Association and set up the new organisation. That will happen in the latter part of December.

The Danish-UK Association's Mission will be:
- To further, trade, investment and cultural relations between the UK and Denmark.
- To be the lynchpin of the Danish-UK Community.
- To support relevant benevolent activities.
- To be member-driven and member owned - a "Forening".

We welcome you to read more about the rationale behind the merger at this link.

Once the final EGM of the Danish Club has passed and approved the merger, you can expect to see developments early 2018 and we will keep you up to date in coming newsletters, events and social media. Stay tuned - new energy, new year, and more good reasons to be part of this membership-driven network.

Kind Regards

Gunnar P. Larsen
Managing Director
Danish-UK Chamber of Commerce
