The APESA Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday 14th October in the Salle des Conférences of the CSI in Gerland, with over 50 parents present. The AGM was followed by a cocktail party and an opportunity for parents to socialise.
President of the APESA Board, Nathalie Perrin welcomed the attendees and summarised in her report the achievements over the previous year, highlighting the challenges faced by the British and American section and outlining some of the work to be done in 2014-15.
This was followed by reports from Rob Miller the Head of Section, and the Vice Treasurer, Albarine Kasprzyk-Bastien. The 2013-14 accounts were then unanimously approved by the parents present at the meeting.

Before moving on to the vote for elections to the APESA Board, Proviseur of the CSI, Monsieur Ferrari spoke to the parents of his admiration for the section, its staff and pupils, and his hopes that the school could continue to grow with the addition of a second site, increasing the numbers of students able to attend the school.
Throughout the AGM, parents were engaged and involved, often asking questions and seeking clarification; something that the Board and Head of Section welcomed and made for a good meeting.
The Board would like to thank the work of the 2013-14 team and also thank Fréderique DiTullo, Loïc Oury, Eric Poisson and Angus Thomson for their work in the last year as they have stepped down from their posts.
Nine parents put themselves forward for Board positions. Following an extremely close vote, which necessitated a recount, the following parents were nominated to join the APESA Board for a two year mandate:
– Isabelle Darlow
– Laurence Jenoudet
– Ratna Laksana
– Anne Laurencon-Loviton
– Karen Reilly
– Esther Wick
We welcome them all to the Board and wish them success in their roles.
