The traditional SACC Detroit Jul Luncheon was once again held at the Birmingham Country Club on December 8th. Despite the snowy weather, guests came from all over the Detroit-metropolitan area with corporate representation from Trelleborg, GM, IKEA, Windsor Essex Economic Development Commission, and Autoliv among others.
SWEA, The Jenny Lind Club, and Swedish Club members also participated. Andreas Waller, SACC Detroit Chairman, presided over the annual meeting with several program events planned for 2017. He then introduced speaker Justin Robinson from the Detroit Regional Chamber who gave an impressive accounting of all the business activity in the Detroit area.
Lennart Johansson, outgoing Consul General, recounted the many accomplishments of his term working for the Swedish government and introduced Tom Mark, newly appointed Honorary Consul General, who will take over his position.
