During the 3rd General Assembly of COTEC in Riga October 3-4 2015 the GA members said goodbye to Executive Committee member Maria Daniela Farrugia who stepped down after two years of her term. Maria served many years as delegate of Malta in varied roles. She was a dedicated member and her valuable contribution to the work of COTEC and the EC will be missed. Three longstanding delegates Lena Haglund, Zdenka Philar and Gunner Gamborg announced they step down as representatives of their country. COTEC thanks them for their contributions and support during all these years and wishes them all the best for the future.
Russia was welcomed as new member of COTEC and two Executive Committee members Patric Duletzki and Elsita Velikova were elected.
