New board elected during Swedsoft’s spring meeting

Last week, this year's spring meeting was held where we went through what happened in 2020, looked ahead and elected a new board for the association.

This year’s spring meeting, which was held digitally, started with a members’ meeting where chairman Richard Bunk and Swedsoft’s general secretary Gabriel Modéus presented what Swedsoft had done during the eventful past year, the finances from the service operations and a financial forecast for 2021. Then followed an annual meeting for the association where, among other things, the annual report was reviewed.

A very important part of the annual meeting was the election of the Board and the Nomination Committee. We are pleased to welcome two new members of the Board, namely Anna-Lena Strömsten, Scania CV AB and Joakim Wernberg, Lund University.
