I’d like to share the good news! The AGLR has a new  Vice President and Treasurer.
 
 I am pleased to report that at our Extraordinary General Assembly meeting on Friday 13 March, several key decisions were made.   
 

I am pleased to announce the elections of:  
            Vice President: Patricia Ford will be in charge of internal and external communication
Treasurer: Penny Rabone will be  assuming the position in April.

            Secretary:  position still currently open.  Anne-Corinne Vingtof has agreed to continue as Acting Secretary.
 
Warm congratulations to both Patricia and Penny and heartfelt thanks to Anne Corinne.    I wish you all the best in your new positions and look forward to working with you.
 
The decision was made,  further to a unanimous vote,  to change our  statutes to allow non-Anglophone passport bearers to hold positions on the Board (excluding the President).
 
Our fee structure  will remain unchanged as our members continue to coordinate a varied range of activities including 4 upcoming special events.
 

 
I am delighted with the outcome of our meeting.  As the year progresses, it’s my hope that this will be the most dynamic and exciting year yet!

warm regards, 
Nancy McGee
President
