IFRRO AGM elects new President and 7 new Board members
Rainer Just, joint managing director of VG Wort, was elected IFRRO President at the IFRRO Annual General Meeting in Buenos Aires on 25 October. He replaces the outgoing President Magdalena Vinent, who stepped down after four successful and energetic years. Rainer has been a member of the VG WORT administrative council since 1993 and of the board since 2000. He has been on the IFRRO Board since 2008.
At the same time, the AGM appointed seven new Board Members: Tracey Armstrong (CCC), Ana María Cabanellas (CADRA), Kevin Fitzgerald (CLA), Heikki Jokinen (International Federation of Journalists), Dora Makwinja (COSOMA), Benoît Proot (REPROBEL) and Yngve Slettholm (KOPINOR).
