Sofie Seidenfaden- Treasurer of E2C Europe
City of Copenhagen - Denmark
Copenhagen has held the post as Treasurer for a decade, and I want to con-tinue the budgetary work in the Association along the lines which has been succeeded by my predecessors. As Treasurer of E2C Europe I will be sup-ported by Mr Tue Wethje, Financial Manager of Copenhagen Youth School. For several years now, Tue Wethje successfully has assisted the Treasurer in balancing the Associations revenues and expenditures as well as keeping the books correctly and transparently according to national and European standards.
I am member of Copenhagen City Council in the period 2018-2021 and ap-pointed to the Children and Youth Committee. In the present election period I am chairing the Board of Copenhagen Youth School.
I graduated from the University of Copenhagen with a Master's degree in sociology. In my professional life I work as a consultant in a national organ-isation of university colleges in Denmark. So, in a broader sense, I am oc-cupied with education which I hope E2C Europe might benefit of.
