2015 Annual General Meeting – Executive Board Report

Teresa K Attwood, Andreas Gisel, Etienne de Villiers, Erik Bongcam-Rudloff

Abstract


During the last year, the Executive Board (EB) endeavoured to meet on a regular basis, and to hold meetings with the Operational Board (OB); fewer meetings were held with the full EMBnet constituency. Aside from the usual issues involved in organising large meetings online (regardless of the chosen technology), the principal obstacle to holding more frequent meetings related to personnel: above all, i) Andreas Gisel (EB Secretary) was seconded to a post in Nigeria, where his Internet connection proved to be extremely unreliable, and maintaining contact with him was often very difficult; and ii) Goran Neshich stepped down as a member of the EB on 15 December 2014. Despite these hurdles, it’s been another busy year, and we’ve worked hard to try to keep the momentum going. This report gives a brief overview of our efforts to move EMBnet, and our affiliated projects and initiatives, forward.
