Thank you Hilde

After 4 years at our side, Hilde d’AUBIOUL is leaving us to enjoy a well deserved retirement.

Hilde is well known to our members. Since 2004, when she entered the world of public employment services at the VDAB, she has been able to bring a knowledgeable expertise, for example as Strategic Policy Advisor at the VDAB since 2013. In this position, she has performed a wide range of tasks and responsibilities. In particular, she contributed to the development of the WAPES Long-Term Strategy and the establishment of the Technical Assistance and Information Exchange Instrument (TAIEX) for the European Commission.

In July 2019, Hilde joins WAPES as the person responsible for the organization, structuring and deployment of the SamPES project. It is thanks to her that this flagship project of our association has been able to develop, despite a 2-year period of restrictions due to COVID. Today, SamPES is a success in the African region, as evidenced by the last meeting that brought together 16 countries in Nairobi and will develop in other regions.

On behalf of the executive secretariat, and all the members, we thank you for your involvement and dedication to our association during all these years.
