Many thanks to our temporary election chair Hilary B., and the election monitors Andrea S. & Theresa G. as well as all the members who turned out to vote for our chapter leadership. It’s the first time the Berlin membership has directly elected any positions besides chapter chair, and an important step in increasing democratic accountability.
