The EYP international board, the Governing Body, met in Berlin for the final meeting of 2016. The board discussed the development of our communication strategy, future vision and steps for international sessions, and prepared the handover into 2017.

The GB Elections results are here and we would like to congratulate Noura, Anthony and Ioanna for their election!
In the international board:
Noura Berrouba from Sweden is keen on improving the day to day running of the EYP.
Anthony McKee from Northern Ireland wants to make our outreach programme more efficient.
Ioanna Yiallourides from Cyprus is determined to build strong and sustainable partnerships for EYP internationally.
The GB election period has come to an end, as the voting for three seats on the Governing Body of the EYP has closed last night. We have three new GB members, and below you can find the results:
A. Results of the Election by EYP Members
• Noura Berrouba 36% of the votes – elected
• Anthony McKee
• Ioanna Yiallourides
• Ilya Kursenko
As the winning candidate from the member election is counted first, this one seat goes to Noura Berrouba – congratulations! Anthony was only three votes behind, so the competition for this spot was extremely tight.
Annual IS head-organisers meetings have already become a tradition! In 2017 for the 6th time the International Office will welcome all the Head-Organisers of the upcoming International Sessions and of the three previous International Sessions.
In October 320 young Europeans from 35 countries came to debate the topics of sustainability, discover cultures and experience Swiss hospitality.

EARLY ELECTIONS TO THE GB
For Beáta’s remaining mandate period on the Governing Body, we have to find a replacement GB member. Beáta was elected to the GB for a two year mandate over the calendar years 2016-2017, and with her early resignation, we are now looking for a new candidate for a one year term, 1.1-31.12.2017. Beáta was also elected to the GB on the member vote, and therefore our EYP members have to elect a replacement.
