(Brussels 07 June) The EWLs annual general assembly came to a successful conclusion on Sunday last, following three very intense days of work.
The delegates and observers and various board members spent three days working on adopting our new statutes, working through our work plan for the coming year, adopting our budget, passing emergency motions, taking part in an EWL cafe, working on several issue groups, and participating in a very fond farewell to a stalwart of the organisation who is moving to retire at the end of this summer.
From the EWL Cafe, which started the weekend for non- board members, several very useful themes were teased out.
While the EWL Cafe went on members of the EWL board met the Croatian President, who received them at the Presidential offices in Zagreb.
Two EWL Board meetings were held, one on Friday and the other on Sunday, bringing the weekends meetings to a close. New members were welcomed onto the board of administration, following elections held on Sunday morning. Elections were held for candidates for the board and executive committee, also held on Sunday.
