The IMA study trip 2017
The destination for this year’s study trip has been decided. With great contribution from you all, we have selected Silicon Valley as this years destination. As you know, Silicon Valley is home to a lot of inspiring and great organisations and we will create a programme that should fulfill any desire for visiting both large, established corporations as well as smaller entrepreneurial businesses.
The official programme will begin on Monday the 3rd of April to the 7th of April. On Monday the 9th of January, at 12:00 pm we will release all 27 tickets for the Silicon Valley Trip. The sign-up is then open for 14 days and after that a deposit of 1000 Dkr will be required. Though, last year, on our succesfull trip to Dublin, the tickets were sold out really fast, so don’t wait too long.
A full programme will follow.
Two board members have retired
When the new semester started around the 1st. of September, two members resigned – Lene Krogsgaard Svinth and Anders Bersang.
Lene, former Business Relations Manager, graduated from IT, Communication and Organisation back in June and is currently employed as Project Manager at JN Data A/S. In her role as Business Relations Manager, Lene has contributed greatly to events in IM-A the last year. Among other, she managed to gather large donations for our Dublin Study in Spring, which helped many members financially.
Anders, former Vice-Chairman, is currently an intern a Novo Nordisk in the Copenhagen area, which is why he decided that his seat in the Board would be to better use for a new member. Through his role as Vice-Chairman, Anders, among other, have created a very succesful study trip to Copenhagen, which had a large number of participants and was a great succes for IM-A.
We are sad that two valued board members have resigned, though from the rest of the Board we say thank you and wish you both good fortunes for the future.
