250 ESTIEMers back from working hard and playing hard in Budapest

....and the 6 Riga representatives (Marina, Laine, Elina, Edžus, Aksels, Niklāvs) are also back now from one of the biggest events this year - XLIX ESTIEM Council Meeting Budapest (November 4th - 10th).
Council Meetings are the biggest events of the organization, happening twice every year, where representatives from each Local group are gathered together. The formal part of the event consists of General Assembly, which is the decision-making body of the network, and Working groups/Trainings.

This was a special Council Meeting for LG Riga and the whole Baltics Region since we had to present the progress of organizing the next Council Meeting - Council Meeting Baltics which will take place in Riga April 14th-20th. Project Leader Marina Jermakova delivered a speach about #CMBaltics and our fresh teaser video, which was filmed in Riga, was shown as well.

We are waiting for you !

2 girls,of our team, Elīna and Laine were working hard for months to finally deliver constructive Trainings and Working Groups  each in pair with a 2nd trainer from another LG, about several topics, such as Productivity or Sports Awareness, to those who were interested.

General Assembly, company presentations and numerous Trainings and Working groups each day were followed by such activities as pool party or Hungarian night with traditional dance. There was even a belated, but fun Halloween party. The CM Budapest (sha-lalalala) organizers team really did a great job. Thank you !

If this wasn't enough already, we are still proud about the fact that Laine Šildere was named the 2nd most active ESTIEMer of the year and Riga - 12th most active Local GroupWe will do our best to jump even higher next year.

P.S.While this article is being written, both, previous and new, ESTIEM Boards, consisting of 6 people each, are in Jūrkalne, Latvia for Handover Board Meeting thinking about the future perspectives of the network.
