New President’s Message -Introduction

by on Sonntag, 1. Juli 2018 14:49

[ Deutsche Version am Ende ] Carola Lange wrote her last message as the Congress's president in the most recent issue of the "Infoblatt." In it, she informed you that she would step down from the office as president. 

At the AGM in April, I was elected as her successor. I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and the members of the current board. 

My name is Bjoern Meinhardt and I was born in Frankfurt upon Main. I grew up in Bad Nauheim, a spa resort some 30 kilometres to the north of Frankfurt in the Wetterau region. I went to school in Bad Nauheim and passed my "Abitur" in June 1988, the high school certificate that allows one to study at university.

The German Embassy is thrilled to announce that the German Parliament (Bundestag) has decided to include Canada into its International Parliamentary Scholarship Program (IPS). Young Canadians up to the age of 30 will have the chance to do a five months long internship (March to July) at the German Bundestag.
