The British-Luxembourg Society ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF MEMBERS HELD ON-LINE ON
7TH OF MARCH 2021
The Annual General Meeting of the Society was held on-line on 7th March in a break from the traditional social gathering.
Our former President, David Clark, stepped down from the Council but was shortly after the AGM appointed as the first Honorary Member of the Society. David’s passion has been integral to all the advances which the Society has made in recent times and leaves the Society in a strong position at a crucial moment in history. The Council will invite David to a private thank you party when the sanitary crisis allows.
Dr Claudine Als also stepped down after several years of service to the Society. Claudine’s wisdom and advice and cultural knowledge will be sincerely missed by the Council but we will remain in close contact.
Patrick Santer also leaves our Council and takes up a new role as Patron of the Society. We are grateful and honoured to have Patrick in his new role.
The new Council members can be seen on our ABOUT US page.
HE the Ambassador kindly spoke to the Members of the Society for the last time before his upcoming departure. The Society is ever grateful for his support.
Some years ago, the British Luxembourg Society held popular quizzes and we decided to revive this competitive spirit in the form of a Poetry Competition.
The poems were a outstanding response to this idea and your video recordings were very special. As judge Marilyn Clark expressed it, they ……. "come from the heart".
A special thank you to the five children who took part in the Junior Category - their talented contributions speak for themselves.
The poems were read and viewed by two judges, Marilyn Clark, BLS member, and Chris Atkinson, a Vice President of BLS (Education).
We decided that the entries were so good that they all deserved prizes and diplomas, with five "main" prizes in the following categories: Native Speaker, non-Native Speaker, special Presentation Prize and Junior (13 and under).
The texts of the poems are available here - I'm sure that you will agree with the judges.
The British-Luxembourg Society together with the Oxford University Society of Luxembourg, the Cambridge Society of Luxembourg and the LSE Alumni Society of Luxembourg invite you to watch the recording of the lecture by
Prof. Dr Catherine Léglu Vice-Rector for academic affairs, of the University of Luxembourg
On the subject of The University of Luxembourg and its future plans
