The Swedish-Municipal Engineering Association is a nonprofit association that was founded in 1902 and whose purpose it is to promote development and education, cooperation and information about the social structure. I have been a member of the Association for over 15 years and have benefitted a great deal from it.
Every year the association organizes a two-day seminar in various municipal engineering disciplines and I have participated in the so-called land and development days. It is like our “medical convention”. It is a valuable opportunity to meet colleagues and build networks while learning about what is happening in our profession.
I have had the opportunity to travel to a number of towns in Sweden that I normally would have had no reason to visit, and thus found several interesting places. In the same way, I think it is important that my colleagues have a chance to come to Trollhättan to see and experience what we have to offer here.
When we started planning a meeting in Trollhättan it turned out we had very good conference facilities with a number of different lecture halls, a large number of hotels and several travel options, including air travel, which is an important factor for long-distance participants from northern Sweden.
