New employee

I am happy to introduce myself to you for the first time today! My name is Alena Bielke, I am 22 years old and will be working in the new ISIA office in Grainau. In September 2015 I started my apprenticeship as an event management assistant at the German Ski Instructors Association (DSLV). After successfully passing my final examination in January ´18, the DSLV took me on as an employee. In the future I will not only work for the German Ski Instructors Association, I will also look after the new office of the International Ski Instructors Association. From September ´18 I will study sports-, culture- and eventmanagement at the University in Kufstein in addition to my professional activities. I am looking forward to meet many of you at the ISIA Congress 2018.

The presidium nominated Peter Hennekes as the new ISIA General Secretary at the end of January 2018. He is succeeding Hugo Reider, who is giving up this task after many years and with great honours.

Let’s develop ISIA together, communicate transparently and honestly and let´s work together, to reach our global goals.
