The first Advisory Board Meeting in the new club year 2014/2015
The first Advisory Board Meeting in the new Club year took place in the Colombian Embassy on 15 October 2014.
(The Advisory Board was set up 2005 for advising and supporting the WiB Executive Board. Each geographical region (7) of the world has a representative from the Diplomatic Corps on the Advisory Board.)
We could welcome three new members of the Advisory Board:
Vandana Gokhale (India) represents the group "Asia Pacific" and has taken over from Louise Rider (New Zealand). Louise returned to New Zealand this summer.
Gamze Karsliouğlu (Turkey) took over the group "Central Asia, East and Southeast Europe" from Rita Onzhanova (Kazakhstan), who returned home recently.
Olivia McDonald (UK) heads the group "EU, North and South Europe" and has taken over from Gunilla Svedmann (Norway) who will soon return to Norway.
We benefited from the occasion to thank Linda Mei-Ying Rüdiger for the excellent job she did as a coordinator of the Advisory Board in the past Club year. Tone Korssund-Eichinger has now taken over this task.
Thank you to old and new board members for their contribution to an interesting and fruitful cooperation.
