400 participants, and representatives of more than 2 million Guides and Scouts across Europe
Together with 400 other participants, and representatives of more than 2 million Guides and Scouts across Europe, reports on actions undertaken in the European Regions of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and over the past three years.
Discussions and agreements on priorities of the European region where taken, following various activities, objectives and discussions.
Delegates at the conference also elected six volunteer members for each of the two regional committees who will be responsible for the implementation of the actions identified in the Regional Plans.
We are very proud to state that over the past six years, we have had representation on the European Region of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts as well as at world level, and we will continue to have a Maltese committee member for the three years to follow.
Ms. Lara Tonna was elected vice-chairperson of the Europe Region back in 2007 and was then elected Chair of the Europe Region in 2010. With this role came also her involvement at world level as part of the World Board representing the European Region. Prior to her service at Europe level, Ms. Tonna was Chief Commissioner of the Malta Girl Guides for a total of 10 years as well as other roles at national and regional level.
Ms. Tonna now passes the torch to another Maltese committee member, Ms. Sharon O’Neill Libreri who was elected as a committee member for the next triennium. Ms. O’Neill Libreri is already experienced in the international dimension of Guiding as she has had various roles in training and resource pools for the past years, to date she also holds the role of Deputy Chief Commissioner of the Malta Girl Guides. We wish her good luck on her new venture.
We are grateful for the many years Ms. Tonna has given as service to the Association as well as the World Association (WAGGGS). She has been able to increase knowledge of our country and our dedicated volunteers, opened our members to more opportunities and always strives to do her best while doing so. We look forward to seeing her achieve new and higher goals in the near future.
