E. Sylvester Vizi re-elected
at the helm of HAC

 



The Hungarian Atlantic Council (HAC) held its general meeting to renew its board, in which unanimous votes were cast to re-elect for an additional term as president, Academician Prof. Dr. E. Sylvester Vizi. The HAC membership also elected the vice-presidents and decided on the chairman of the supervisory committee and its officers.


Pursuant to the statutes of HAC, a general meeting to elect officers is held every third year, and the meeting was held this time in the building of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. In his keynote address, the president of HAC gave an assessment of the period under his leadership, which he considered as essentially successful. He noted that the Hungarian Atlantic Council had a good reputation both with the government, the institutions, as well as the social entities and the citizens. E. Sylvester Vizi highlighted the cooperation with the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and also spoke about the establishment of outstanding relations with the Ministry of Human Capacities over the last year. He also took note of the cooperation with the missions of NATO allies accredited in Hungary, with emphasis on the active role of the Embassy of the United States of America in the events organized by HAC, and in particular on the good personal relations between HE Ambassador Colleen Bell and the HAC. "The Hungarian Government attaches great significance to the activities of HAC, operating as an NGO, which held several significant conferences and events last year and provided a possibility for promoting the Atlantic ideas and spirit" - stated the president of HAC. Following the reports by the president and the supervisory committee, the officers of the Council were elected, with unanimous votes cast in favour of re-electing the president in his capacity.
The general meeting also elected the vice-presidents of the HAC: Anna Felkai, Ilona Hardy, Réka Szemerkényi, Ágnes Szentiványi, György Csóti, André Erdős, István Szent-Iványi and Péter Siklósi have joined the presidium. Árpád Kovács was elected as chairman and János Stadler and Dávid Vogel were elected as members of the Supervisory Committee. After the renewal of the presidium E. Sylvester Vizi thanked the membership for the confidence and went on to confirm: HAC will continue to devote its activities to promoting awareness of Hungary's membership in NATO and the related tasks as well as the dissemination of knowledge about the North Atlantic alliance.
