Congratulations to the newly elected members and our commiserations to the the other candidates who ran for the election. We look forward to meeting, engaging and sharing many future Charter experiences with both the successful and not so successful candidates across Europe.
We wish to thank the outgoing Presidium Members for all their hard work and dedication to the Charter and the duties they performed towards each member municipality. Their contributions have made the Charter a unique organisation in Europe – one which is centred on European Citizenship within small rural communities. As a collective of rural communities representing each EU country, the Presidium has empowered us with a strong and representative voice for all European citizenship and we trust the new Presidium will continue the great work of the outgoing members.
