 President’s message

Dear friends, Liebe Freunden/chèr Amis

I want to inform you my experience during the 37th FECC Convention in Valletta (Malta). It was our 4th visit to this island and directly I observe an enormous progress in the infrastructure and public buildings( example airport). The participation was large again ca.170 participants. The Belgians (Arlon, Louvain)  and Germans(Braunschweig, Cottbus)  were with 65 participants the largest delegation. Furthermore was Aruba present again. The participation of persons under the 40 years was impressive. The following decisions were:

  1. Mr.Goerge Zahra was appointed unanimously as FECC Senator
  2. The candidature of Rijeka (Croatia) for hosting the 40th FECC Convention.
  3. The international board and treasurer were approved by the General Assembly
  4. The dates of the Dies Natalis 2017 in DNIPRO (Ukraine)
  5. Mr. Peter Balogh has been appointed as General Deputy of the USA following the resignation and previously approved assession to become the first female Senator of Odessa Pegus

The accommodation in Seashells Resort in St.Paul’s Bay was great.
