Big news – big changes❗️

2020 is a new beginning for many, also for DACCSW. The Danish American Chamber of Commerce Southwest and The Consulate General of Denmark in Houston have formed a new partnership. From the beginning of 2020, the Consulate General has taken on the role as the secretariat for DACCSW – meaning the Consulate General will be handling memberships, inquiries, and assisting in executing future events.

This partnership will strengthen and professionalize DACCSW and explore synergies such as utilizing high-level visits to the benefit of Danish companies in DACCSW. The Consulate General is the primary access point for Danish interest in the Southern US and serves as a hub for both incoming Danish visits and a contact point for local authorities and businesses.

Be part of a new beginning for DACCSW;
Join us for an informal networking event on March 12 at 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM - where The Consulate General open their doors for all current, former, and potential members to participate in an open dialogue on how the Consulate General can direct and develop DACCSW, and create value for all members.

For more information and registration to our event, please send an email to Annsofie Lybaek at [email protected]

We will focus on our LinkedIn page, so for any future updates - Please follow our LinkedIn page.

DACC Announcement:

Good morning dear members & friends of DACC,

Back in 2011, 4 individuals including Anna Holliday, came up with the idea to form a Danish American Chamber of Commerce in Houston, covering the Southwest Region of the US…

Since then, and still to this day, the continued success has been solely due to the great support of our members as well as hard work from our Board members… all on a volunteer basis

Following the opening of the Danish Consulate in Houston, DACC’s role & focus have changed slightly, with more focus on cooperating with the Consulate and fellow chambers, striving to become more visual and add value to our members…

During our last Board meeting it was decided to increase our membership fees starting 1st Jan., 2019 – as follows:

$ 600.00 Corporate per year (increase from $500)
$ 400.00 SMB / Small Business Membership per year
(increase from $300)
$ 200.00 Individual per year (increase from $100)
$ 100.00 Student / Retired per year (increase from $50)

As the majority of memberships are up for renewal, we will offer 2019 fees, if renewed by latest end December

We thank you for your continued support

Hello, I'm an organizer of The Scandinavian Languages Meetup of Albuquerque and we're trying to get our name out there to anyone who speaks Danish, Norwegian or Swedish and might find themselves in the Albuquerque area. We'd love your help in spreading the word by sharing this on your page! Here's our description from the main page on Meetup: "Here in the Southwest, there are rarely any opportunities to speak Norwegian, Swedish or Danish, so why not create our own? If you speak a Scandinavian language and are in the greater Albuquerque area, come join us! Our members are a diverse group of university students who have travelled abroad, native-speaking expats, international students, Scandinavian-Americans and language nerds who meet over coffee or a beer at least once a month and enjoy each other's company." Here's our Meetup page for more info: https://www.meetup.com/scandilang-abq Our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/scandilangabq/ Thank you!
