The Current Immigration Climate and its impact on Businessess
How the new immigration and political climate is affecting you: A Round Table discussion of trends involving increased scrutiny upon admission at airports

Dear DACC Members,

Hopefully you are all enjoying the summer and the warm temperatures. The first half of 2017 ended with a well-attended and successful Sankt Hans that drew quite a few guests new to DACC. This year’s midsummer event was held in a new setting, but it still featured a good ‘hyggelig’ atmosphere that marked a milestone as DACC moves forward with a host of new programs.

At the DACC board, we are very excited about the second half of 2017 and have already begun new initiatives designed to increase our membership and raise our visibility in the community.

A fundraiser update and big thank you from the captain of the danish soccer team Ralf Nielsen:

It was an honor being captain of the Danish team at Nations Cup arranged by Soccer in the Streets. Combined, the charity event raised over $40,000 which is almost three times as much as last year! All the money goes to Soccer in the Street's work to offer sport programs to poor kids and homeless people in Atlanta. Let's hope we can do even better next year! A huge thanks to our main sponsors: DSV, Maileg and Buoyant Wine Storage - without them it

It's been trending in the UK and US for so long that it has almost become a publishing genre in its own right. Now hygge is here to stay with its very own entry in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED).

The popularity of hygge has seen British as well as American media putting out article upon article on the culture behind the word – often holding forth on Danish clichés such as candles, wool, fireplaces and elderflower juice. to read more click here

DACC's Sct Hans Celebration took place in Azalea park in Roswell, in a pavilion alongside the Chattahoochee River. Ida and Stine our social committee chair kicked of the festivities by welcoming guests to the event. A delicious BBQ with hamburgers, danish hotdog and all the Danish condiments you can think of was enjoyed by all.

Many thanks to Ralf and Emil who who were our grill masters on this very hot day. We did not have a bonfire, but Carsten Ladefoged, DACC’s Vice President held a speech followed by singing of the traditional Midsummer song. The kids


Ralf Nielsen DACC's culture committee member is putting together a Danish soccer team (Americans are also welcome) for a charity soccer tournament on July 30th at Grady Stadium. So far they are 9 players - a few more would be nice. Furthermore, they are desperately looking for sponsors to support them. It cost $125 per player which means they need to raise at least $875 in total.

Legater til udlandsdanske børn og unge

I mange familier, der bor i udlandet, er det kun den ene af forældrene, som er dansker. Derfor er det ikke sikkert, at der bliver talt dansk derhjemme. Men for at børnene kan bevare deres tilhørsforhold til Danmark og den danske del af familien, er det vigtigt at kunne begå sig på dansk.

The Danish flag is to grace the Millennium Gate at Atlantic Station through July 4th but will be joined by Old Glory for American Independence Day in celebration of the close relations that the National Monuments Foundation has developed with Denmark. The Millennium Gate serves as the foundation’s headquarters.

The foundation is headed by Rodney Mims Cook Jr., who announced that the Danish flag was raised at the monument in time for Grundlovsdag (or Constitution Day) on June 5th. Mr. Cook also cites the birthdays of Denmark’s royalty including Prince Joachim‘s and Prince Henrik‘s birthdays in June.

In addition, he cites as
