To European National Committees

Dear Presidents and Dear Members of National Committees in Europe,

First of all I want to wish you a Fruitful and Productive new school year.


I was really happy to meet some of you in Shanghai. The World Assembly and Congress were really excellent. We are grateful to China Committee for its efforts. As you already know, Maggie Koong, who was our treasurer, was elected unanimously as new President of OMEP (2014-2017). Mercedes Mayol Lassalle was elected as Vice President for Latin America. We congratulate both of them. I have to say that World Assembly applauded extremely warmly Ingrid for her efforts during the years of her service. For the minutes of the European Meeting see below.
