Board Talk

Shiny EESTECers,

A new era has just began for EESTEC with the election of a new Int. Board. We are just returning from a great HoBOM (Handover Board Meeting), where we had amazing moments with participants of LC Athens’ workshop. At the same time, we devoted many productive hours working on following up activities of the previous Board (which we thank for their work and devotion to EESTEC development) as well as for developing new plans that will lead EESTEC to the future!

We had the chance during this month to speak with LC representatives and especially with participants in Athens’ workshop and define expectations and fresh ideas in the future. Then we evaluated all of them during HoBOM while we were enjoying ourselves on a Greek island!   

Keep smiling and let the summer sun shine upon you! :)

International Board


Congratulations and best of luck for the new board of LC East Sarajevo, LC Istanbul, LC Ankara, LC Novi Sad, LC Rijeka and JLC Lille
