Last week we asked for your help in order to suggest potential candidates to the Council of Founders: thank you for sending 500+ suggestions: 18 member out of 21 are people who were previously nominated and the 5 Alumni who received most recommendations were appointed. The Council of Founders is committed to BBS values, like competence, diversity and inclusion. We believe that the new Alumni BoD fully reflects such principles as we see beautiful differences in terms of culture, nationality, age, gender, attitudes, careers, backgrounds and more.
Nevertheless, today the Council of Founders appointed only 21 members out of 31 positions available. In order to allow even larger participation, a new call for interest and nominations will be issued in the next months. Finally, the co-Presidents will call a General Assembly of the Alumni Association, by the end of July 2021, to elect 5 new members of the Council of Founders.
In spite of the difficult time we are facing, BBS continues to work and build a better future. In this perspective, we are now boosting the Alumni Association in order to involve more and more members of the community, strengthen our network and multiply opportunities for all our stakeholders.
We are looking forward to organize the greatest Alumni Reunion as soon as the circumstances will allow it. Meanwhile we encourage you to regularly visit the BBS community website and engage in creative and challenging activities with the Alumni Association.
