The Contact Point Denmark consists of Gorm Casper (who takes care of the partnership with RC Sonderburg in RC Flensburg) and Dr. Ulrich Kumme (who takes care of the partnership with RC Roskilde in RC Hildesheim, which has already existed for 50 years), who are happy to arrange contacts for interested parties outside the Rotarian networks, projects and topics in Denmark.
