ENFiD Benelux Has Come

by Betsy Jance Vonatzigen

3 June 2017, Maastricht NL. – The fruitful weekend meeting of ENFiD leaders from the BENELUX region was strategic in all counts. Prominently present were Tess Ramakers-Badana ENFiD Chair Netherlands along with her highly engaged Team, ever dependable Juliet Frisnedi Enfid Belgium along with educator and community leader Bernadette Schlueter, sister of friend & Enfid Swiss elected leader Zürich-based Minerva Mondejar Steiner.

ENFiD Europe leadership was all out in supporting this momentous event with organizer / presenter Rohlee de Guzman Exec Director herself based in Maastricht along with BOD Secretary Diane Mondragon Halmans of Roermond NL and ENFiD Chair Betsy von Atzigen of St Gallen, Switzerland. ENFiD deeply acknowledges Volker Hauck of the European Centre for Policy Development for the meeting venue. So central was this location that it significantly positioned ENFiD BENELUX within the continent.

We met rising stars at the same gathering – young and talented YENFiD forerunners Kaya and Mandy while NL based Rosa occupied herself connecting with YENFiD Italy. Be not surprised, the coming General Assembly may just burst at the seams.

Congratulations ENFiD BENELUX! Watch ENFiD connect with Filipinos across Europe, network with Euro-Pinoy kababayans, and raise one voice over our common concerns in Europe and at home. Come, connect and network with ENFiD prime movers on 29 September-2 Oct 2017 in Essen, Germany for this year’s General Assembly and Conference.
