New BoD task distribution
We are delighted to welcome Maria Sabrina Greco to the Board of Directors following the recent BoD elections. She will take over the role of Director for Awards from Kostas Berberidis.
Joining the BoD is a significant voluntary task. Therefore, many thanks go to Maria Sabrina Greco for her willingness to be nominated and serve in this way.

Kostas Berberidis and Toon van Waterschoot were re-elected for a second term. Toon van Waterschoot will remain in his current position of Director for Operations and Finance. Kostas Berberidis will become Director for Publications, taking over from Alle-Jan van der Veen. Alle-Jan van der Veen is standing down from the BoD because he has reached the end of his second term, the maximum allowed under the rules.
I want to express huge thanks to Alle-Jan on behalf of the entire Association, myself personally, and the BoD.
Thank you Alle-Jan for all your efforts and many achievements!
