We in the old board wish to thank all of our members, the old and the new, the active ones as well as the hibernating ones, not only for putting up with our blabber for the last year and a half, but also for the more or less constant production of articles that has been sent to us. It has been a great honor to work with such an old and prestigious association that has meant, and still mean, so much for so many. But enough about us and more about you! As a matter of fact, after the break, the new Kzine board for 2023/2014 will be appointed! Now, I know how many skilled and interested people that has been involved with us and therefore we will have an election committee to nominate the most suitable successors to the current board. But fear not, being interviewed is fun! And if you have what it takes, you just have to spit it to be acknowledged for it! These meetings/interviews will take place during the first weeks of the spring term and thereafter we will have our Annual Meeting where non-nominees may rally for any position they feel on equal terms with the nominees. If a position lack a competitor at the meeting, the nominee will be appointed as usual.

More information about the exact details will come closer to the event. So, do you feel like this is something for you? Would you work as hard as previous boards has done before you in order to keep the Kungsholmen tradition that is Kzine alive and kicking? In that case, send an email about yourself and what position you’re interested in to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
