Conference resolution available, chairmanship moved ceremoniously to the ENCN
The conference resolution of the 24th BSSSC Annual Conference is available on the BSSSC's website. In the conference chairmanship was ceremoniously transfered from the outgoing Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council to the incoming chairmanship of Eastern Norway County Network.
24th BSSSC Annual Conference was succesfully organised by the Regional Council of Häme in Hämeenlinna, Finland between 14-16 September. The title of the conference was "Bridge Over Troubled Waters - Value of Regional Co-operation in Challenging Times" and many speeches and comments regarding this theme from many organisations around the Baltic Sea and Europe were given. The main message from the conference was that in order to survive challenging times regions should deepen their co-operation even more.
In the conference ØstlandsSamarbeidet (Eastern Norway County Network) received the official BSSSC bell. Along with the bell the chairmanship moved to Eastern Norway County Network, which will officially start its chairmanship in January 2017. Annual Conference closed with the words of the incoming chairman Mr Roger Ryberg: "When we meet, we don't fight."
We would like to thank the organizer Regional Council of Häme, all the speakers and participants. We’ll see you in the Annual Conference next year!
