Farewell and Welcome

Dear WIB members,

It was a great pleasure for me working with you during the past 1,5 years. I had a very interesting time with WIB and enjoyed attending various nice events and meeting wonderful people! Since working for the Foreign Ministry means moving on continuously, my family and I will leave Germany again next summer. Therefore, starting September 8th I will be joining a long-term language class for Russian in the Foreign Ministry.

I wish WIB every success and all the best to you and your families personally!

Elke Bilgin


Dear WIB Members,

I moved to Berlin recently, having lived in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in central Canada during the last ten years for personal reasons and where I represented the Federal Republic of Germany as Honorary Consul for more than seven years. It is my pleasure to share and offer my professional and personal experiences for my new job with WIB, and I look forward to working with the Executive Board, the group leaders and all WIB members!

Be sure of further good support provided by the WIB office!
