Do you know that one school you would badly want to apply to Romanshorn 2013, our next National Selection Conference? Have your friends been asking you how to join EYP? And are you ready to enthuse new people for our organisation? We want you to help us diversify and extend the pool of schools that participate in our events.

Ms Kerstin Mathias (DE) was selected to be the president of Zurich 2013, the 73rd International Session of the EYP, taking place in Zurich 19th – 28th July 2013. The selection was made unanimously by a Selection Panel composed by a representative of the National Organising Committee, the president of the past International Session and a representative of the Governing Body of the EYP.
EYP Switzerland has previously had the pleasure of working with Kerstin and is looking forward welcoming her as the president of its summer session. Further information concerning Zurich 2013 can be found on the session website.

The members of EYP Switzerland elected a new board at the annual General Assembly which took place on Sunday, 3 March 2013. The assembly confirmed the incumbent candidates in their positions and elected Julie Huissoud and Nora Willhelm as new candidates, who will take over from Filip Winzap and Delia Berner. EYP Switzerland is much obliged to Delia and Filip for their longstanding dedication to the organisation. The board of EYP Switzerland for 2013 is composed as follows:
— Ueli Staeger (President)
— Sophie Debrunner Hall (Vice-President, International Coordination)
— Cecilia Mihaljek (Support International Coordination)
— Konrad Staeger (Communication)
— Nora Willhelm (External Affairs)
— Lukas Bock (National Events)
— Dominic Degen (National Conferences)
— Julie Huissoud (Finances & Membership)
The assembly approved of the minutes of last year’s GA and the annual account, discharged the board and confirmed Patrick Geiger and Kathrin Munz as auditors. Furthermore, an open open discussion about improvements for school recruitment and regional sessions took place.
With the upcoming year bringing many exciting opportunities for EYP Switzerland, namely the International Session taking place in Zurich in July, and given the recent cancellation of a Regional Session, the board decided to set “balancing high ambitions and limited resources” as its motto for 2013. All whilst taking into account the limited personal and financial resources of EYP Switzerland, the board aims at maintaining its high quality standard at all events.

We were very happy to welcome 65 EYPers to our Christmas Dinner, which took place in Basel last Saturday – a pleasant and sociable end to a successful year for EYP Switzerland. The first round of Regional Sessions, the National Selection Conference in Aarau as well as several social events and trainings would not have been possible without the dedication and involvement of our alumni. Thank you to all those who organised or attended one of our events.
