Michal Szymanczak: Acting Secretary General of YMCA Europe

14th September 2010

Our Secretary General, Johan Vilhelm Eltvik, has been selected to take over the role of Secretary General of the World Alliance of YMCAs (WAY) with effect from 1 January 2011. In order to facilitate the development of important work at WAY, WAY President Ken Colloton has asked us if we could reassign Johan Vilhelm’s duties so that he can work full time on WAY matters as soon as possible. In order to help the WAY in this exciting time, I am pleased to say that we are in a position to release Johan Vilhelm with effect from 15th September 2010.

I am delighted to advise you that Michal Szymanczak, currently Deputy Secretary General , will from 15th September assume the role of Acting Secretary General of YMCA Europe until a replacement is found for Johan Vilhelm. Therefore, with effect from 15th September 2010 please contact Michal if you need the Secretary General of YMCA Europe (michal@ymcaeurope.com). Many of you already know Michal and I am sure he will continue to provide the high level of support which you have come to expect from YMCA Europe.

Thank you in advance for your help and support to YMCA Europe during this transition period.

With kind regards,

Peter Posner
President of YMCA Europe
