Jan Bijlsma retiring from the DutchSA Board
Jan Bijlsma will ‘retire' as Treasurer from the Board after 8 years active and successful involvement in DutchSA Events, taking care of IT and Finance and many other social events and board activities. Jan, we thank you and will seriously miss your energy, wisdom & expertise, stakeholder management, and of course your Friese ‘nuchterheid'!
New DutchSA Board members Nancy Spork and Anton Scholte
We welcome Nancy Spork and Anton Scholte as our new Board members. Anton will take over the position of Treasurer from Jan Bijlsma.
DutchSA Advisory Board
The DutchSA Advisory Board with DutchSA founders Willem Ouwens and Roland Lever will be extended with Jan Bijlsma. We plan to extend the Advisory Board with more expertise and access to various industries.
New DutchSA Committees for Business and Member Engagement
We have set up two new Committees Business Engagement and Member Engagement, to involve more of our members in organising business events & trade missions, and effectively manage member related activities. We are welcoming expressions of interest to grow the team. Email email@example.com, or talk to us at the First Thursday networking drinks to let us know you are interested.
Today Willem Ouwens retires from his position as The Netherlands Honorary Consul to South Australia. DutchSA joins the Dutch Embassy in Australia in thanking Willem for his long time service and dedication to the Dutch community in South Australia!
