In June this year, Mrs. Yasmine Gouédard was elected by the College members to be the first head of the ICE’s Permanent Secretariat. On 14th September, she formally took up her position of the coordination structure. Since, she has been actively working on consolidating links between members. Mrs. Gouédard is in close contact with the stakeholders of the College, and in constant association with the Presidency and Troika board. Her first trip was to Zagreb, as Croatia assumes since February 2020 ICE’s rotating presidency for a year.
