Dear Members,

A short note to wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year (and belatedly posting this message on our website a tad later than it was sent out by email).
As you will all likely know by now, members elected me president of the association at the annual general meeting in December.
Thank you again for your confidence in me, and in the new Secretary General Cathy Nolan as well as the new committee line-up, which features some new faces alongside the veteran officers.
And thank you again to the outgoing leadership for their hard work over the past year. If I have done as well as they did by this time next year, I will regard my term in office as a success.
The committee and I will do our best to provide you with a varied range of guests and a lively set of social events, including of course the increasingly popular Happy Hour on the last Friday of every month, over the next 12 months.
The AAPA year kicked off with a flurry of guests – Mediapart’s Edwy Plenel on January 9, CGT leader Philippe Martinez on January 11, Xavier Niel on January 24, and Benjamin Griveaux on February 12.
We look forward to seeing you at the many other events that are in the pipeline for the coming months.
Please also consider joining the AAPA Facebook group. It’s a closed group that only AAPA members can join, so what you post there is seen only by members.

Bonne année 2018

Rory Mulholland
