Alecs Recher has decided to step back from his position as one of the two Co-Chairs of TGEU at the end of 2016. Alecs joined the Steering Committee in 2012. He first became the Secretary and a member of the Executive Board. In 2014 he was elected Co-Chair.
Alecs has played a key role in extending and expanding the activities of TGEU in new areas as well as changing TGEU from a volunteer-led organisation into a more professional advocate of human rights. His expertise has been invaluable in many areas and issues, he continues to be active in the field of promoting human rights.
The Steering Committee and staff team of TGEU would like to take the opportunity to thank Alecs for his work over the past four years.
