As you know, there are always some changes in the board at the beginning of the year. Some board members leave and new ones join. This is how the board functions.
Being a board member means dedication and commitment. Each board member gives his/her valuable time and contributions during his/her tenure. Although the usual mandate for a board position is two years, some board members have devoted many years of their personal time to the Chapter. One such veteran is our ex-Vice-President Freddy Wildemeersch who served the board with passion and devotion for several years in different roles. This year, he decided to quit and Erik Leung signed up for this challenge.
On behalf of the board, I take this opportunity to thank Freddy for his immense contributions to the chapter – to the board and to the members. We wish him all success in his professional and private life. Please join me in welcoming the new vice-president Erik Leung.
