Our fifth Members’ Meeting took place this time in Riga, chaired by our exclusive Latvian member, Edward Kuznetsov. Like in earlier years, this three-day event turned out to be a highly valuable business meeting. The Members’ Conference privileged the seminar day, but also included a welcoming reception, dinners, and an exciting social program with a tour of Riga and bobsleighing.
