New Executive Committee and Co-Chairs elected at AGM 2019
Over 160 early- and mid-career researchers from all over the world met in Halle, Germany for the GYA’s Anniversary International Conference of Young Scientists and Annual General Meeting last week.
To represent and lead them through the upcoming year, GYA members elected leaders hailing from 5 continents – a majority of whom are women – to the Executive Committee. As Co-Chairs for the upcoming year, members chose Connie Nshemereirwe (Uganda) and Koen Vermeir (France).
Connie and Koen were both re-elected – Connie was a Co-Chair last year, while Koen was a member of the Executive Committee. Both Anina Rich (Australia) and Yoko Shimpuku (Japan) were re-elected to the Executive Committee.
A hearty congratulations to the Co-Chairs and the Executive Committee members!
