Ms. Carmel Thompson, IVETA President 2015-2016
The results of the IVETA elections for 2015 completed on December 5 are as follows:
Thank you to all of those who participated in the ballot. We had a wonderful response.
There were several matters addressed & discussed at executive meeting in Nashville and annual business meeting:
Constitutional Changes put forward were overwhelmingly accepted. See the website for the new Constitution which brings our constitution and by-laws back into alignment.
Adjustments to regional boundaries for Africa, South Asia and East Asia and The Pacific to provide a fairer distribution of regions so Vice Presidents can address service and liaise with members more equitably .
International Conference in 2015 will take place in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia in August. Our website and regular Hotline newsletter will provide you with relevant information in the new year. You will not want to miss this exciting event.
Our website has been completely upgraded and a new addition will be an added. A page dedicated to each region.. Members and vice presidents can provide updates on what is happening in TVET in their country. We hope you will all be active in providing this information which can be shared by our members so we are all kept informed of changes and best practice examples.
My new team (the Executive Committee) and I will work very hard in 2015 to promote membership and provide better services so that we can all share expertise, learn and grow. This in turn will promote the virtues of vocational training in preparing national workforces and workers for the challenging times we have ahead.
Let’s make 2015 a very successful and fulfilling year for ourselves, our institutions and our students!!
Ms Carmel Thompson
