MGIP Newsletter July 2019


This year’s MGIP Summer Meeting took place at one of the most beautiful places in all of Greece – Grecotel Cape Sounio!

Taking place between 28th June and 1st July, we were joined by 83 member and friends, to enjoy three sunny days packed with exchanging knowledge, engaging lectures, joyful evenings and, for the first time ever, early morning yoga sessions.

The summer meeting this year was a very special one for the MGIP, as it was the last one with Jean Arcache as our President. However, it marked the beginning of Christopher Hudson’s interim presidency along with other interim changes with Kiran Kapoor giving up her seat on the Board of Directors, to be succeeded by her son Kapil Kapoor. We also welcomed Annabel Lammers to our Board. All will remain in their roles until the next official election in 2021.
 
At the meeting, Board member Robin Wood, announced his intention to leave the Board at the end of this year, and was appointed an Honorary Member. In total, seven associated members were appointed to full members at the General Assembly. Each proudly received their MGIP pin by newly appointed President Christopher Hudson and received a big round of applause by all attending members.
 
We were very happy to welcome the PEN President, Mme Jennifer Clement, who was our keynote speaker, to our summer meeting. She gave an impressive speech about the role of PEN in the publishing world. We encourage you to take some time to read about PEN and their advocating for Human Rights, specifically for the rights of authors and publishers.
