On 9 September 2017 at the IBLC AGM in Cincinnati, Carlos Alayza handed over the leadership of IBLC to Sophie Lagayette. Sophie will serve as IBLC Chair until the conclusion of the 2019 AGM. Carlos had served as Chair since 2015 and had been a Councillor from 2012 to 2016.
The AGM also elected two new Councillors: Rick Holzer and Fernando Rivadeneyra. They take over from Jim Zipursky, who had - most recently - served out the last 18 months of Siegmar Pohl’s term, and Sophie, who had been a member of the Council since 2013.
Please join me in congratulating Sophie, Rick and Fernando and thanking Carlos, Jim, and Sophie!
