The NCF has benefited from the hard work and dedication of our current Secretary General Jose Forslund for around 3 years. But all good things must come to an end, and we've been on the lookout for a new Secretary General the last month.
We're proud to announce that we've found the candidate who's just right for the job: Emma Tcheng. Emma is an active member of Svensk Ungdom in Finland, is 22 years old and studies political science at the University of Helsinki.
Emma has been an active member in Svensk Ungdom since 2013 when she started as a board member in SU’s region in Helsinki. Since fall 2014 Emma has been the chair of Svensk Ungdom in the Helsinki region and actively involved in local politics.
The board was involved in the process all along, and the decision to choose Emma was based on several discussions within the board about what a good Secretary General is made of:
Emma has actively followed the situation within the Nordics and the border controls between Denmark and Sweden is particularly problematic to her. Emma also sees the NCF as a strong platform to tear down the borders between the Nordic countries:
Emma will start her job as Secretary General on May 1st. The current Secretary General, Jose Forslund will end his term later this month at Repskapet in Oslo. Emma will be attending Repskapet 2016 in Oslo as well.
For further information:
Jose Forslund, Secretary General (until 1st of May)
