Lund Council meeting
Election results and more:
Our Council meeting in Lund represented our first in-person Council meeting since Newcastle in June 2014. Not surprisingly, we had a very full agenda including one late addition which will be carried over to Metz.
Highlights of the Council meeting included announcement of the election results for the Board and Auditors who will begin their 2 year term at the General Assembly in Metz:
President: Don Nease (re-elected)
Vice Presidents: Jorge Brandao and Michele Paree (new)
General Secretary: Paul Sackin (re-elected)
Treasurer: Mark Budow (re-elected)
Auditors: Pia Soderberg (new) and Janet Walker
The Leadership Task Force chair, Andrew Elder, reported on the Task Force meeting in January in Israel. The Task Force is looking to extend its work beyond planning for its biannual conference. Download the full report off the IBF website, click here
. The Board announced its appointment of Mary Wassink from the USA to replace Heide Otten, who is rotating off.
A late addition to the agenda was a proposal by Board to share the costs of underwriting a new book of Ascona Prize student essays. This resulted in much discussion which could not be resolved, and therefore this will be brought back for discussion with a full proposal at the Metz General Assembly.
