When Danhostel held its annual general meeting at Danhostel Kalundborg on April 30, 2019, two new board members were elected. They are Rikke Hobolt, a representative from Danhostel Rømø, and Kathrine Lind, hostess of Danhostel Copenhagen Bellahøj.

At the annual general meeting, Danhostel's articles of association were altered to make them more flexible, so that it will be easier in the future to appoint board members. Up to that point, it was a requirement that all types of ownership were represented on Danhostel's board, i.e., private and municipal owners, and owners of independent institutions, so it was a challenge to appoint new board members. With the amendments, the board now comprises owner representatives, host representatives and external members.

Three board members were up for election, but only one was re-elected, leaving room for two new board members. Ole Hust from Danhostel Frederikshavn City was re-elected and received the post of Deputy Chairman. The two new board members are Kathrine Lind from Danhostel Copenhagen Bellahøj and Rikke Hobolt from Danhostel Rømø. With these two appointments, Danhostel has achieved one of its goals in connection with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, namely, to appoint more women to Danhostel's board.

Danhostel's Board of Directors now consists of:

Chairman of the Board
Poul Kristian Mouritsen - Mindbiz

Deputy Chairman
Ole Hust - Danhostel Frederikshavn City

Board Members
Jens Phillipsen - Danhostel Esbjerg
Rikke Hobolt - Danhostel Rømø
Kathrine Lind - Danhostel Copenhagen Bellahøj
Tim Mikkelsen - Danhostel Horsens
Per Lange Andersen - Danhostel Ringkøbing
