When Finansforbundet in Nordea invites to Annual General Meeting (AGM) Friday 25 March 2022 at 18-21.30, you decide for yourself how you want to participate.

You have three options:

  1. Hotel Scandic Sluseholmen in Copenhagen
  2. Locally with your colleagues at the workplace
  3. From home

The flexible format is reflected in the AGM theme: “The future for communities: Let’s start talking”.

Non-native Danish? Consider to join!

As in previous years, the AGM will be held in Danish. If you have some knowledge of Danish, we encourage you to participate - maybe you can ask a colleague to translate the overall themes. The voting ballot will be in both Danish and English.

The invitations with the opportunity to sign up will be send out within 1-2 weeks, but already now you should consider how you want to participate - and reach out to your colleagues to hear if they generally wish to attend the AGM in Copenhagen or prefer to do something locally. When you have the dialogue now locally, it will become easier to choose - and choose the same as your colleagues - when you sign up.

Here is more info about the three options:

1. Participation at Scandic Sluseholmen

If you choose to attend the AGM at Hotel Scandic Sluseholmen in Copenhagen, an easy-to-eat dinner will be served during the AGM. After the AGM, you can enjoy a cosy and social evening with your colleagues.

Accommodation and transport
You have the option of staying overnight between Friday and Saturday with breakfast on Saturday morning. The deadline to sign up with accommodation is 10 February. Please consider whether you want to stay overnight at the hotel before choosing. From 10 February, we will have to pay for the booked rooms (DKK 1,195 per room), but we would much rather use the money for member activities than for empty hotel rooms.

You must take care of transport yourself. Finansforbundet in Nordea covers your expenses when you use the cheapest public transport. If you drive your own car, we encourage you to fill up the car with as many colleagues as possible.

2. Participation at the workplace

You can also choose to participate at your workplace locally together with your colleagues, where you follow the AGM on a pc or on a big screen.

We pay for a welcome drink, tapas menu and drinks for up to DKK 250 per person. In addition, we will send you a party box with ingredients for creating a cosy and fun atmosphere.
Before the AGM, you will receive a link to be able to follow the AGM virtually.

Local event planner
You will have to find an event planner who is responsible for the event locally - manage registrations, receive the party box and order the food. If you yourself would like to be your local event planner, please contact your colleagues as soon as possible so they know the opportunity and you can coordinate. Also notify the board members Katja Larsen (katja.larsen@nordea.dk / mobile 20 66 84 21) or Louise Have Lund (louise.have.lund@nordea.com / mobile 51 34 93 43). We will contact you with further information and invite you to a guiding Teams meetings etc.

Here is an email text, which you can personalize and send to your colleagues (due to the GDPR we are unfortunately not allowed to inform you about which of your colleagues are members):

”Kære kolleger

Finansforbundet i Nordea holder generalforsamling fredag 25. marts 2022 kl. 18-21.30, hvor man kan deltage på Scandic Sluseholmen i København, sammen med kollegerne på arbejdspladsen eller hjemmefra. Læs mere på https://finansforbundet.dk/gf2022

Jeg vil gerne arrangere noget lokalt hos os, hvor vi kan se generalforsamlingen sammen i filial/adresse på en storskærm el.lign. Finansforbundet i Nordea betaler velkomstdrink, tapasmenu og drikkevarer til alle deltagende medlemmer, og vi får også noget pynt, så vi kan få en hyggelig aften sammen i festlige rammer.

Hvis du vil deltage, så giv mig besked – og husk at tilmelde dig til generalforsamlingen, når invitationen udsendes i 2. halvdel af januar – og vælg at du vil deltage virtuelt.

All members are welcome to attend the AGM.

Of course, we follow current corona guidelines.
