Highlights of ADB's Annual Meeting events included ADB President Nakao's announcement that he supported grandfathering of retirees' pension benefits, and two remarkable speeches European Chapter Coordinator Gunter Hecker has provided to his constituency: one by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and another by the former German President Horst Köhler.
AFE President Bong–Suh Lee (BSL) called the meeting to order at 2:00 p.m. The meeting agenda was adopted.
BSL announced for the record that Hans-Juergen Springer (HJS) had been reelected as the executive secretary to serve for another 4 years until 2016. He also announced that the proposal to extend the term of Deputy Executive Secretary Jill Gale de Villa (JGV), by 2 years until 2014, was approved by the vast majority of the 220 members who responded. The extension of JGV’s term was considered necessary to avoid a possible situation of the positions of executive secretary and deputy executive secretary being filled by newly elected officers as a result of simultaneous elections for the 2 positions. A 2-year extension meant elections for the positions could be roughly equally spaced apart in the future.
