This year, NCCL Season Launch & Reception was special in many ways. Most importantly, because it was the last event for NCCL Executive Director Ilze Garoza who has been an invaluable part of the growth and success of the NCCL over the last 5 years. The Norwegian Ambassador, Her Excellency, Ine Måreng thanked Ilze for her dedication and hard work. On behalf of the NCCL Board, Chairman and Partner at Advokātu birojs "Spīgulis & Kukainis" Matiss Kukainis handed Ilze Garoza a certificate of appreciation for her service to NCCL over the last 5 years.
At the Season Launch the new NCCL Executive Director Krista Vahtele was introduced as well and the members had the chance to meet her for the first time.
