On December 9, 2021, the members' assembly of the AS-International Association again took place virtually due to the Corona Pandemic. The agenda included the review of the year 2021 and the planning for the coming year 2022, as well as the regular elections of the board. These elections were held online for the first time with the help of a secure election tool.
In this year's elections, Jochen Bihl (Bihl+Wiedemann GmbH) was re-elected as chairman of the board, Dr. Markus Platen (Siemens AG) as vice chairman, and Michael Strauss (ifm electronic gmbh) as treasurer. Frank Ebert (Pepperl+Fuchs AG) was newly elected to the board as head of the technical commission.
We look back on a year with many challenges and interesting experiences. Also in 2021, many events could not take place as usual. Despite the characterizing year, we are pleased that the cooperation with our member companies - even at distance - worked very well.
We would like to thank the Board of Directors for their work over the past two years and look forward to the new year with confidence. To good cooperation!
