IRO - Andy Ventress

During my first year in the role as IRO I have visited Germany, Romania, Hungary and Switzerland for their AGMs as well as attending both the International AGM in Brussels and HYM in Malta. I was also able to attend the European Capitals Meeting in London. All these events enabled me to represent GB&I and take our good wishes to other countries.

In the second year I had booked in to attend the AGMs of Portugal, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Italy, France, Austria,. I was also going be attending the International AGM in Verona and HYM in Brasov. Unfortunately due to Coronavirus all these AGMs have been postponed or cancelled. This has left me with South Africa, Poland, Cyprus and Belgium as possible visits this year. The International AGM in Verona and HYM in Brasov have been postponed to 2021. The International AGM in Verona (27 - 30 May 2021) and the HYM in Brasov (15 - 17 October 2021)

The YAP program for this year has been postponed until 2021. On a positive note GB&I have appointed a YAP convenor, congratulations to Bruce Bennett who will represent us in the coming years.

I now have a Facebook group, 41 Club GB&I IRO News and an IRO blog, which I post current information.

Please feel free to get in touch if you need any help with anything to do with 41 International.
