As the newly elected president of APECS, it is a pleasure present to you the APECS October 2009 Report and the Priorities for 2009-2010 of the new APECS Executive Committee.

The APECS October 2009 Report is a semi-annual report that highlights the APECS activities from February until October 2009 with a summary of the international accomplishments that APECS was able to achieve as well as a list of upcoming activities. The year 2009 has been very successful so far for our organization and we want to continue building on this in the upcoming year.

As most of you know, on October 1, 2009, the new and very enthusiastic APECS Executive Committee 2009-2010 started its term: Francisco Fernandoy, Germany / Chile, Gerlis Fugmann, Germany; Daniela Liggett, New Zealand; Kate Sinclair, New Zealand and Alex Taylor, Sweden/Canada. As one of our first tasks, we created a document that shows our priorities for APECS in the upcoming year. We think it is important to enhance the current APECS activities and initiatives, and to expand our major services. If you want to know more about the new Executive Committee, you’ll find all of our bios on
