The annual Alumni Weekend took place from the 28 - 28 October 2017 in Bern and featured many trainings for our alumni, including a summit for all its Head Organisers, Chairs' Training, Media Team Training, EU Institutions Trainings and others.
Last Sunday, we held an Extraordinary General Meeting in Köniz. There, our members have elected three new Members of the Board of EYP Switzerland: Patricia Azevedo, Eléonore Bleeker and Nisso Käser! We welcome them on board and wish them all the best for their portfolios!
Now that you know the Head-Organisers, and when and where the upcoming Regional Sessions of EYP Switzerland are going to take place, it is our pleasure to open the CALL FOR ORGANISERS! If you wish to shape the first session of our next generation of EYPers, work on a long term EYP project and see how a session works "behind the stage", this is your opportunity! Apply NOW to join the four organising teams; the deadline is on 12 November: https://goo.gl/forms/QFpksGqsU97RgxBQ2

It is a great pleasure to present you who is running to be one of EYP Switzerland's next Board Members:
Nisso Käser is running for External Affairs;
Eléonore Bleeker is running for Regional Structure & National Events; and
Patricia Azevedo and Nicolas Zazzali are running for the National Coordination portfolio!
Please find their manifestos here: http://www.documents.eyp.ch/egm2017_allfiles.zip
Today, we would like to introduce to you another member of our National Coordination Department, Nicolas Zazzali! Here is what he has to say:
"My name is Nicolas Zazzali, I’m in second year of High School. I started EYP in 2016, in Bern. What I like most about my portfolio is that our team guides the delegates from their first regional session to the national one, and then help them spread their wings in the rest of the EYP network."
