During the weekend before the GDCh Science Forum the young chemists were busy again and besides workshops and evening program we also had our speakers meeting. Of course, Frank and Katharina were happy to give their opinion in between and put the new BV candidates through their paces. But actually, besides their work as active JCF members, both were there to deliver a report from the GDCh board.

The fact that the election was won, and both are now sitting on the GDCh board from 2020 was already widely known, but there was given an applause. The first GDCh board meeting, to which both were invited, took place two days later during the Science Forum. Therefore, they reported which topics are on the agenda and how the procedure will look like. Furthermore, some questions of the speakers were clarified and after 10 minutes the show was already over.

It was stated that the How-to-Speaker Workshop needs an introduction to the work of the GDCh Executive Committee and that the JCF Committee on the work of the Executive Committee will take care of it at the next Speaker Meeting.
