By nominating and electing Dr. Tamer Abu-Alam as the new GSAf’s newsletter editor and information officer, the position of Northern Africa councillor fell vacant. The GSAf council had received 5 applications for the position (3 from Morocco, 1 from Algeria and 1 from Egypt). Only the Egyptian candidate was present and she presented to the Assembly her perceived contribution if she is elected. The General Assembly elected Dr. Kholoud Abdelmaksoud as the new councillor for Northern Africa. The council thanks our colleagues from Morocco and Algeria who showed interest to serve the society and wish all the success to Dr. Kholoud Abdelmaksoud as the new councillor for Northern Africa.
