I would like to
welcome you back and I hope you have had a wonderful Summer.
We have our Children's Walk coming up on
the 29th of September, and the Bazaar on the 21st of November, I
encourage you to take part in these very important events and help
us in order to ensure the success of these major Guild activities.
Over the past year we have been
confronted with a few challenges, the most difficult of which was
holding the Bazaar on time due to the ongoing renovations which will
continue through out the year, the Executive Committee and myself
exerted much effort in order to be able to hold it on time, many
meetings with high level UN officials were held which resulted in
confirming the 21st of November as this year's Bazaar day.
Nevertheless, we will still be facing Bazaar related technical and
logistical problems, I count on your help and support in order to
overcome these difficulties.
Another challenge was the shrinking
number of vehicle access badges to the UN, which had come as a
repercussion of the renovations , Guild was only permitted to have 5
UN vehicle access badges, we were not the only entity affected by
the new arrangements.
Finally, the most pressing challenge is
the intention of the UN administration to move us from our current
premises (the Villa), we are now working jointly with the UN
administration in order to find a suitable alternative premises for
Your support, dedication and perseverance will certainly pay off and
get things straightened out for Guild's progress.
