AGM 2021 reelects the entire board
On 23 February 2021 our first ever virtual AGM was held with some 33 attendees. Our 2020 AGM took place shortly before the pandemic hit, on 11 February, with a record attendance. So this was somewhat different, one could say, but still a nice event. And most importantly: The entire board opted for reelection.
The Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday 23 February, 2021, at Zoom (due to Covid-19). Present were altogether 33 attendees: 20 delegates representing 16 members, in addition to our auditor, guests, and the General Manager. In addition two power of attorneys had been given by absent board members. Tom O. Kleppestø, the General Manager, was elected to sign the protocol
