History of CING-CE

The initiative of starting the sub committee of Chalmes Alumni Association for Continental Europe, CING-CE for short, came in the late 1990's. Reacting to the growing number of Chalmers alumni spreading all over Europe, the board of Chalmers Alumni Association (CING for short) asked one of the originators of the Chalmers Spex, Tore "Fredde" Fredriksson, which had moved to Breisach in southern Germany after retiring as an engineer, if he could help them to start a sub committee of CING for alumni located in continental Europe. He was willing to try and organized a weekend get-together in the nearby city of Basel in Switzerland. The get-together was a success and the sub committee was formalized with a board for organizing future get-togethers. Tore also became the chairman of the first board of CING-CE, a position he held from 1998 to 2001 when he resigned. Tore became an honorary chairman of CING-CE in 2005. He and his wife Inger are still very appreciated guests at the get-togethers.
