I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the candidates who put themselves forward for election. We are grateful for your continuous support and engagement. To the outgoing Board members Naim Abou-Jaoude, George Bitar and Iyad Malas, your dedication and engagement have been essential for the enhancement of our organisation. Thank you for sharing with us your passion, insight and experience.
 
As you already know, I will also be stepping down as a Board member having served two consecutive terms and this will also be my last email to you as Chairman, I now officially pass my baton over to May. Please join me in wishing the best of luck to the newly formed Board.
 
With my best wishes,
