I have developed strong ties with the Region and I want to contribute to its further development, focusing on the vision for 2025 for stronger guiding in every European country.
Pascale Vandersmissen (Belgium)
Pascale was elected tp her 2nd term with the Europe Committee.
Pascale's personal statement:
From my very first Regional Conference in 2001, I was fascinated by the women on stage taking the lead at this level of leadership beside their daily lives and jobs. It was the turning point where I also started to realise that this was something that could make a difference, a new challenge, and a new way for me to explore and use my energy and guiding drive. From there on I did not stop reading documents and reports, and made friends all over the world with whom I could learn, but also with whom I could openly share my ideas and passion for guiding and global issues.
