TGEU Announces New Board

TGEU is pleased to announce the results of its Board election, which took place this weekend. After a democratic process that saw members of TGEU cast their votes, we are excited to introduce you to our new Board.

Leading the charge as our Co-chairs for the period 2023-2024 are Dinah Bons and Sara Phillips. They’ll be joined by six amazing new Board members who are joining the team: Hmayak Avetisyan, Pip Gardner, Purity K Tumukwasibwe, Raevynna El Messaoudi, Suma Abdelsamie, and vreer verkerke. The membership has also elected Justus Eisfeld and Tanja von Knorring as Auditors for the next two years. Each of these individuals brings a wealth of experience and expertise to TGEU, and we can’t wait to see all the amazing things we’ll achieve together.
