The new elected members of the Executive Committee are Gilles Pesant, Ines Lynce, and Hélène Verhaeghe. We are also happy to announce that Nadjib Lazaar will be serving as the Treasurer of the ACP as a non-voting member.

Within the new team, the newly appointed roles of the ACP EC are:

  • President - David Bergman
