Executive Forum 2016


SACC-USA organized its flagship event, the Executive Forum on May 19 in Washington, D.C. The event turned out to the largest and most successful Executive Forum ever arranged by SACC-USA with over 50 top level executives attending. The full-day event featured a number of highly achieved speakers, such as H.E. Björn Lyrvall, Ambassador of Sweden to the United States, Congressman Randy Hultgren (IL-14), Alf Göransson, President and CEO of Securitas, Daniel Mullaney, Assistant USTR and Nancy McLernon, President and CEO at OFII. The day started at the House of Sweden with panels and presentations on interesting and relevant topics such as Swedish-American ties, the latest updates on TTIP, and the importance of lobbying in Washington, D.C. The concluding panel was held on Capitol Hill and covered the U.S. federal election with political commentator Lanny J. Davis as one of the panelists.
