The transfer of the WAIMH Central Office to Finland is finally well underway. The huge undertaking of moving, not only the office physically, but all of the networks, databases, and the legal responsibilities to Finland is moving forward. Palvi Kaukonen, current Associate Executive Director, and the forthcoming Executive Director, and Minna Sorsa, the forthcoming Administrative Assistant visited the Central Office in the beginning of June. They worked very hard alongside Tina Houghton, Dee Fitzgerald and Hiram Fitzgerald to learn all of the duties and responsibilities of the Office. I believe they walked away with a much better understanding of what will be needed when the Office moves to Tampere in August 2008. WAIMH’s number one goal is to make this transition as seamless to our members as possible and we believe that with the cooperation between the parties involved it will be.
