As we mourn the passing of Nelson Mandela, our first democratically elected president, we not only celebrate the gift of his life but reflect on his legacy. This legacy of leadership should inspire us to be ever more active in our pursuit to achieve a prosperous future for the entire Southern African region.
In keeping with this legacy of inspirational leaders we are proud to announce the new leadership team of the Association of Allan Gray Fellows. The outgoing Executive Committee was the first leadership team of the Association, and served from 2011-2013.
An online voting process saw 46% of the Allan Gray Fellows participating. The following Fellows will be taking up these positions in 2014:
Arushka Bugwandeen (Class of 2010): President
Danisa Nkuna (Class of 2010): Secretary General
Ludwick Marishane (Class of 2012): Vice President of Startership
Akosua Eunice Koranteng (Class of 2012): Vice President of Leadership
Eunice Steyn (Class of 2012): Vice President of Community.
The period 2014/2015 will bring with it new challenges and opportunities, and we have every confidence that the new team will not only be up to the task but will have the former Executive Committee and all the other Fellows rallying around you.
Here’s to another year of fruitful and purposeful pursuits for The Association of Allan Gray Fellows.
