It is yet again time to board the ferry to the Aland Islands and to relive old memories from previous national annual Conferences!
JCI Mariehamn has created an extensive education program. As a Senator you may attend if you wish, however, in case you feel like you have received enough training over the past years, we have an alternative Senators program specially dedicated for you.
Exclusive Senators program
We will start with a Welcome Cocktail for Senators on Friday evening before the actual opening ceremony takes place.
Those of you that are absolute early birds can start your day with a guided run together with the Mayor of Mariehamn, Barbara Heinonen. The guided run STARTS at the Hotel Arkipelag. However, if you would like to sleep in, you may at your own pace enjoy the hotel breakfast and then visit Alandica, where you can listen to keynote speaker Peter Wiklöf, who is the CEO of Ålandsbanken Abp. Peter Wiklöf will give you a detailed view of the progress that Ålandsbanken has made both in the east and west.
At noon JCI Mariehamns own Senator and Parliament delegate Annette Holmberg-Jansson will welcome us at the newly refurbished Parliament of Aland. She will inform us on the parliamentary work of the Aland Islands and on the special status that Aland holds within the north and the rest of the world.
The Senators lunch will be held at ‘Smakbyn’, a restaurant owned by Chef Michael Björklund who gained fame through popular Scandinavian culinary TV shows. Bus transportation will take you to and from Kastelholm and Smakbyn.
The counsellor of commerce Anders Wiklöf is willing to open the doors to his private art collection at his summer residence ‘Andersudde’ (limited entry).
At www.boostyourcareer.fi you can read about the whole program, captivating keynote speakers and everything else that will take place during the weekend.
