Dear UAEMers of Europe,
Hello again from the European Board. This year is already half over, and a lot has happened in 2015 so far. UAEMers all over Europe have been confronted with new and exciting challenges and opportunities.
The new Board has allocated some important positions: Tommi Deimel is our new Chair. Rachel Kiddell-Monroe, Max Brauner and Zavira Heinze will form the Governance board group. Max Bender, Zavira, Rachel and Tommi will work on Human Resources and communication with the Executive Director (ED). Caroline Gallant, Jonny Meldrum, Isabelle Erbacher and Tommi will be responsible for fundraising. Zavira and Max Brauner will be attending ECC and EmCom calls so that there is effective communication between all of us.
These roles are temporary and might be subject to change at our first physical meeting on 28-30 August. If you feel that there is something specific we should discuss at this meeting, please let us know!
We are thrilled to see UAEM taking a very strategic approach with the new Action Plan! It is fantastic to see a global campaign embedded in our AP, and after the GLAM, this next year promises stronger alignment and cooperation between various international UAEM branches than ever.
We have an eventful time ahead of us, with our ED Lukas going on paternal leave. The new Board is trying their best to prepare for this time, and we will be supported by a fantastic substitute ED who will be announced soon, so keep a look out!
