Meet EFPTA's new President!

At the Board meeting on 30 April in Odense, Denmark, EFPTA members elected Mette Eggertsen as our new President for 2022-24. Mette, of the Danish psychology teachers' association, was previously EFPTA Vice-President. Most Board members attended in person - the first in-person meeting since November 2019 - and a small number attended virtually. An unusual 'hybrid handover' took place when outgoing President Lenka Sokolová (2019-22), from the Slovakian association, who attended via Zoom, handed over the role to Mette who was there in person - see the photo! The Board thanked Lenka for the huge amount of work she has put into advocating for high school level psychology teaching in Europe, and promoting EFPTA amongst psychology educators and practitioners. Fortunately, Lenka is continuing on the Board as representative for Slovakia.

The other three Officers elected /re-elected at the meeting are: Vice-President - Jock McGinty (England and Wales); Treasurer - Wolfgang Augustin (Germany); Secretary - Morag Williamson (Scotland). 

The main business of the meeting was to plan activities for 2022-24 - watch this space for news of events!
