SDN Finland won the Chapter Award category for Best Member Relations and gained an honourable mention in the category of Excellent Event Organization and Most Innovative Initiative.


The jury recognised that SDN FINLAND has developed excellent member experiences by hosting a wide variety of more than 12 innovative initiatives and events for their community in the past year. Their activities range from national conferences and workshops to book club meetings and informal meet-ups.
