Danish Dual Citizenship
Recent developments in Denmark, will soon result in an easing up on Dual citizenship rules for Danes.
Current rules are confusing and discriminating, as Danish abroad unless you give up your Danish passport, you are prevented from participation in the political process in the country where you live.
Political parties in Folketinget have now made an agreement in this regard, according to DR.DK a redrafted law will be proposed this year, and an expected date for it's effect will be mid 2015, some details are still unclear.
You can follow developments here also.

Please make a mark in your calendar, if you can not attend in person complete the Proxy and mail to the club or give to someone who will be attending.

The Proxy form is included in the September Newsletter.
We are currently a very popular club and regularly have full house for our Cafe nights Friday, however it does require some efforth to bring this event to the members, and we need new members to step up and join the committee, as well as others who can give a few hours as helpers especially in the kitchen.
Join the committee, organize events, meet new people, discover your inner chef or editor – you may not be aware of all your secret talents until put to the test.
Calling stallholders and volunteers! Raffle ticket sellers! Jugglers!
Bearded ladies! Magicians! Street musicians!
The Scandinavian Festival returning again in 2014 the last two years has been an absolute success, not only for the Danish Club members, but also for the clubs relations within the Scandinavian community, it is now the third year after the break, however we do need help and if you can volunteer 2 or 4 hours on the day please contact Soren our President.
By putting the spotlight on Scandinavia, we attracted many Scandinavian visitors and all clubs gained new members. Far from all Danes – and other Scandinavians - living in Brisbane and surrounds are aware of our club, so it is an important opportunity to increase awareness.
This year we have added a professional ABBA band for the afternoon at the festival this is in addition to the regular performers including by the Danish Folk Dancers and KUPALEJA.
Please let me or any member of the committee know that you would like to participate as a volunteers. / Søren
