Susie Burrage OBE, President, BIR, has confirmed the appointment of Alicia Garcia-Franco as new Chairwoman of the organisation’s Articles of Association and Internal Rules Committee.
Garcia-Franco (pictured left) is Director General of BIR’s Spanish member association FER and has been at the head of the organisation since 1994. Over the years, she has been active within BIR, in particular in the framework of its network of national recycling associations with an important focus on legislation affecting the recycling sector. Since 2014, she has also held the position of Vice-President of EuRIC, the European Recycling Industries Confederation.
“I have had the great pleasure of working with Susie Burrage within EuRIC for several years, and I am honoured that she is giving me the opportunity to support her as Chair of the Articles of Association and Internal Rules Committee”, comments Garcia-Franco. “Statutes and by-laws are the backbone of an association, and honing them for the benefit of its members is an important task which I will take very seriously when my services are required.”
Burrage adds, “I have witnessed Alicia’s commitment and high work ethics over the years and consider myself very fortunate that she has accepted to be part of my team at the start of my presidency.”
