– It is important that the new Board of Directors works to strengthen the finances of the organization. Then we will also increase recruitment and have more members, Fløystad tells NRK.
She believes that the organization will manage it. Fløystad lives in Soppero in Sweden, but is originally from Skånland in Norway.
Here is the new NSR Board of Directors:
Beatrice Fløystad – leader, Hinnøy and the surrounding Sami association
Vidar Andersen – organizational vice-president, Tromsø Sami association
Beaska Niillas – Political Deputy Head, Tana Sami Association
Gunn Anita Jacobsen – board member, Kvænangen Sami association
Gaebpien Egon – crew member, Maadtoij website
Rita Helmi Toivosdatter Laakso – board member, Mjøsa and the surrounding Sami association
Vidar Andersen was proposed as a candidate for the leadership, but the selection committee preferred Beatrice Fløystad.
– I’m running for vice president of the organization, Andersen said just before the election. This means that there was no postal vote.
It should also be noted that Karasjok, Kautokeino and Nesseby are not represented on the board.
