To be held on Zoom.

The American Swedish Institute cordially invites you to join us virtually on June 17, 2020, for our Annual Membership Meeting — open to all current members. In the midst of tragedy, social upheaval and a pandemic, we thank you for gathering with us to participate. 

We are especially honored to welcome Swedish Ambassador Karin Olofsdotter, who will deliver greetings and opening remarks.

Traditionally, the Annual Meeting has been a time for discussion and an opportunity to elect new trustees to the Board. This year, members will hear from Barbara Linell Glaser, Board Chair, and Bruce Karstadt, ASI’s President/CEO. We'll also review the past year, share future plans and discuss the impact on ASI of COVID-19 and the current civil unrest.

The meeting will be held through the Zoom digital platform. We hope this format will encourage broad participation, especially among those who live beyond the Twin Cities area.
