YEU Governing Board Meeting in Thessaloniki, Greece | Update from the GB

Dear YEU Family,

After the short summer break, the YEU team organised its annual event – YEU Convention that was the 41st edition in this year and took place in Stratoni, Greece between 13th and 23rd of September.

On behalf of the YEU Governing Board, the board member Yagmur Asila joined the convention in Stratoni. On 22nd and 23rd of September, the Governing Board members and the Secretary General were welcomed by USB at the Balkan Heart where USB – United Societies of Balkans has their office in Thessaloniki, Greece. Only the Vice-President Daniela Sofia Correia was unable to travel due to unexpected circumstances, but she attended the board meeting online. 

The GB members and the SG discussed the projects being implemented, the approved projects, potential partnership, potential Member Organisations, YEU’s upcoming events, internal and external representations, statutory changes and work plan for next year. The objectives and expected outcomes of the Working Groups were drafted for the year of 2024.

In the beginning of September, YEU contacted a notary as the law in Belgium requires us to update our statutes. For this reason, the preparation has started and the board members discussed the statutory changes. Details are planned to be shared with the member organisations and the board decided to have the YEU General Assembly – winter edition in Belgium since we would need the notary to be present in the assembly. 

The board members also went through the applications for co-opting a new board member and made a decision that will be shared with the members very soon.

Moreover, board members and part of the secretariat revealed the positive contribution of the time spent together to the decision-making process in the organisation through these face-to-face meetings. We always remember and remind everyone that YEU is about friendship, connection and trust: YEU is YOU. 

We would like to thank USB for hosting the meeting at their office in the Balkan Heart. 

It was undoubtedly a momentous meeting for the YEU Governing Board and YEU world.

Stay tuned and youth!
