The annual meeting of national queer organization Samtökin ’78 took place last Saturday, March 25th.
Only one person ran for chair this year, María Helga Guðmundsdóttir, and therefor remains chair. The same goes for secretary Álfur Birkir Bjarnason, treasurer Benedikt Traustason and international secretariat Kitty Anderson.
“We want to heartily thank everyone who showed up and took part for their contribution at the meeting.”
Sigurður Júlíus Guðmundsson was chosen vice chair and Guðmunda Smári Veigarsdóttir and Þórhildur Magnúsdóttir members of the board.
Extensive changes to the laws of the organization were put to vote and agreed upon. Changes that will be thoroughly introduced in the coming weeks.
Nearly 60 members attended the meeting and the board wishes to thank them. “We want to heartily thank everyone who showed up and took part for their contribution at the meeting,” says in statement from the board.
