On ELARD General Assembly 9th of December a new council was appointed. New council-members in the council are Stefan Niedermoser from Austrian LEADER Forum and Jan Florian from the Czech LEADER Network. Re-elected was Anita Selicka, Latvian Rural Forum and Terry Keenan from Irish Local Development Network. The presidency stays the same.
We would here like to thank Kirsten Birke Lund and Radim Srsen, that have now stepped back from council. We thank them for the time and effort they both have put into the network and we aim to still keep in contact. The General Assembly have appointed them both to honorary members.
Bulgaria is now also full members of the network, wonderful news for ELARD and its network that wants to give rural Europe a voice.
