Connexx meets in Warsaw and appoints a new Board of Directors
What started as an idea, a concept in 2012 by Alex Dockers, became a reality. Alex, as a Judicial Officer based in Belgium, believed that there was an information gap in how other countries enforced judicial titles and how they undertook debt collection.
The other question was how to form a network where English is the second language and how to cooperate with other countries on the same level? These were the burning questions.
In South Africa the same year, the Union International Huisseir de Justice was holding its congress meeting. Alex made contact with like-minded Judicial Officers, and Martin Leyshon and David Walker, who were representing England, Wales, and Scotland, were invited to join in discussions.
Agreements were made, and the rest they say is history. Connexx now has a network of 18 partners in different countries throughout Europe.
At our last Connexx General Assembly in Warsaw, Poland, several changes were made, of which we would like to share with you, and new countries joined our network.
Alex Dockers stood down as the president after seven years of given the network much-needed direction, guidance, enthusiasm, and commitment. Alex, we thank you for everything you have done for our network, and even though you will now become a backbencher, we are sure that your contributions will continue to be invaluable.
We also would like to thank Adrian Bayh, who has also stood down from the board for his contribution over the years.
Martin Leyshon also stood down as the Vice President. Martin, however, remains on the board as its technical director. Martin said, "I am looking forward to working with our new president Damir Site and other new members of the board". "The challenge is to take the network to the next level now that the foundations are firmly in place".
To check out the new president and the board profiles, please see members of the board.
New additions – We welcome Morgan Matile from Switzerland and Geoffrey Galle from Luxemburg to the board.
Over the last three years, Connexx has welcomed new partners from:
We wish to put on record our sincere thanks to our Partners in Poland for organizing our General Assembly and making it a great success. Sylvia, in particular, met everyone's expectations. Thank you once more.
Speaking of Greece its' the destination for our next Connexx meeting to which I'm sure all members are looking forward to attending.
