We hereby invite all our members to the 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM), on January 31st, 2019.
The AGM will be followed by our monthly event, open to all participants. Feel free to invite a friend to join the after work event once the AGM finishes!
We are very pleased to welcome guest speaker Flavio Santos, Country Manager for Signify Sweden, as our guest speaker for the January after work event. Flavio will kick off the New Year with a call to action: a workshop about sustainable development where your input will help guide the discussion on how innovation, equal opportunities and a vision towards the future can shape the energy and lighting industry today.
The AGM is an important forum for our members to influence our network moving forward. We encourage you to take the opportunity to express your suggestions on speaker topics, activities etc - your feedback is warmly welcome in advance of the meeting by sending an email to one of our board members or at the AGM itself.
Please let us know if you will attend the AGM by registering to this event. Please note, if you register to attend the AGM you don't need to register for the AW as we will run the AW immediately after the AGM.
