Epilogue of the past ERF President
Dear friends, Ranger colleagues and members,
The World Ranger Congress 2019 in Nepal is history now and you can find a report in our newsletter.
Now Urs Wegmann is elected new European Representative for the IRF and with this Urs is the new President of the European Ranger Federation which I´ve had the great honour to create with the support from all of you. Urs officially will take over his duties as ERF President at 1. January 2020.
For the last three and a half years I´ve kept the position as European Representative of the IRF and for two and a half years I´ve worked as ERF President.
As it is with all new organizations there was a lot of work to establish the ERF, to become well-known, to consolidate ERF, to work on an image for Rangers, to support our members in Twinning-Projects, exchange-programs, Ranger Trainings and the creation of new Ranger Associations, to name but a few of the tasks.
As past ERF President I would like to thank you all for your confidence and great support.
It was a great honour and pleasure to meet you and to work for the Rangers in Europe and I´ve enjoyed your national Ranger meetings and your hospitality all over Europe.
But this should not be a final “Good-Bye” – together with Michael Großmann I am organizing our 5. European Ranger Congress in Bavarian Forest NP in Germany from 11. – 16. May 2020 and I hope to meet you all there!
Thank you all for your dedication, passion and motivation to protect wildlife all over the World by being a Ranger!!
Be proud to be a Ranger!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
