Some of the participants at the first day of #IYDUrio

IYDU elected a new Executive after a successful Council Meeting in Rio de Janeiro. A few achievements from ‪#‎IYDUrio‬ include a newly elected board, adding seven new member organizations, and outlining our goals for 2015-2016. Most notably, we will shortly be announcing upcoming events covering the next six months – needless to say we will be busy.

In the coming weeks, the new board will present their broad ranging plans during these events, through newsletters, on our website, and on social media.

The new IYDU Executive consists of Chairman: Jason Emert, YRNF (USA), Deputy Chairman: Bruno Kazuhiro, Juventude Democratas (Brazil), Secretary General: Kai Jorgensen, YRNF (USA), previously Høyre (Norway), and Treasurer: Simon Breheny, Young Liberal Movement (Australia).

The board consists of new representatives and former officers of the 2014 board, making this an excellent transition of knowledge between the two.
