GMM - GENEVA. 27th FEB - 1st MARCH 2012
Since decrentralisation and the set up of Zones, many of us have not been to Geneva since the last GMM in 2006. However, we do have very productive annual meetings at zone level and relevant technical meeting there too. Travelling to our global headquarters in Geneva is a pilgrimage of special significance and a number of us were greeted by the stunning view of the Alps as we flew in to Geneva, and the next day, warmly greeted by the Secretary General, below.

Juan Saenz Beltran did a brilliant job facilitating the meeting. Thanks Juan.
Bekele was everywhere trying to give individual attention to each member of his huge field team and this we greatly appreciated.
