New board Sietar Europa

Dear SIETAR-ians!
I am delighted to welcome our new executive officers team to the board.

President: Joyce Jenkins, also serving as the President of SIETAR UK
Vice-president: Hanneke Brakenhoff, Board representative from SIETAR Netherlands
Treasurer: Linda Vignac, also serving as the President SIETAR France
Secretary – presently vacant

I am very confident in this wonderful executive team having worked with each of them through the years. I am also very confident in the many capabilities of our talented Board Members (link to SEU Board page). SEU is in good hands! Sometimes it feels like contributing to the Board is tedious and time consuming. But it is also our contribution to help shape a field and organisation we are passionate about. I have always felt it a worthy contribution.
