Are you a Swedish-speaking woman living in San Diego? Come join SWEA San Diego!
We are a region under SWEA International, and have about 100 members spread throughout all of San Diego County.
Year round (a bit sparser during the summer months) meetings are held for all members. We try to meet at least once a month during the day or after work with a speaker, an activity, to prepare for our Christmas market or something else. Sometimes we coordinate outings throughout San Diego. The highlights during the year include our spring dinner in May, our “crayfish fest” in September, and the Christmas market with our popular Lucia procession in December. Don’t miss out on these remarkable events!
The SWEA San Diego newspaper editing crew send out a newsletter three times a year to keep members up to speed with the latest and greatest going on. We educate each other through seminars and other activities. As a member in SWEA San Diego you will also receive an annual address book listing all members.
When you join SWEA locally, you simultaneously enter a global network with the opportunity to reach out to other Swedish women living in all corners of the world. SWEA arranges both regional and global meetings, to which all members are welcome. As a member in SWEA San Diego you also receive an International newsletter, SWEA-Nytt, which is sent out electronically monthly, and also SWEA Forum, a global magazine, which is mailed to you twice a year.
The yearly dues for SWEA San Diego in 2016 are $55. If you are 25 or younger or a brand new member, the fee is reduced to $30.
Contact Annika Carnes, chair of membership, via email (sweasandiegomedlem(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)gmail.com) if you are interested in becoming a member or if you have questions.
