I want to express my wholehearted appreciation to all our visitors at the Open Day, who spent part of such a sunny Sunday with us. About 5,000 people came to visit the building and its meeting rooms, to appreciate the artwork that our staff and delegates have the privilege of seeing each day, to learn about what we do, and even to take a peek inside my office! We were very happy to answer your questions and to open our doors to the Geneva community.

I'd also like to thank you for supporting the local charity Pa´dos by buying lottery tickets and sampling the international buffet provided by our members and staff. Together we raised CHF 17,279.

Our volunteers, our members, the whole staff and myself thank you for making this day a big success. I hope to see you here next year!
