On the 18th of March, two new members of the Board – Marta Polna and Ieva Kristīne Kuļikovska – were elected at the semi-annual members’ meeting.

Ieva Kristīne Kuļikovska returned to Latvia with a wealth of experience gained during seven years living in Vienna, Austria. Prior to joining the Board, she was an active supporter and participant in the organisation, sharing her international experience. Ieva’s involvement in various events, research projects and integration in the organisation’s policy group underlines her commitment to improving social integration and the well-being of the return migrant community in Latvia.

Marta Polna, who spent five years in Southern Europe, mainly in France, joins the Board with significant experience in international IT and HR project management. Marta’s professional path aligns with the association’s mission to actively promote creative and social projects.

The addition of Marta Polna and Ieva Kristīne Kuļikovska to the Board is a significant milestone for “Ar pasaules pieredzi Latvijā.” Their diverse backgrounds, combined with their desire to pursue the organisation’s goals, promise to drive forward significant initiatives that will benefit both the return migrant community and society at large.

Kristaps Loze, Chairman of the Board of “Ar pasaules pieredzi Latvijā” comments, “First of all, I would like to thank our previous Board members, Oskars Teikmanis and Roberts Strenga, who made a significant contribution to the growth of the organisation. Marta and Ieva have already proven themselves by actively participating in our activities, bringing new ideas and energy to the association. I am pleased to see that they have also chosen to stand for the Board and am confident that together we will be able to continue the development of “Ar pasaules pieredzi Latvijā” while strengthening its existing organisation.”

 

*“Ar pasaules pieredzi Latvijā” is the first and leading return migrant (repatriate) organisation in Latvia.
It was established in 2017 as a platform for people with different global experiences to connect and work on common projects. Members have lived outside Latvia for a certain part of their lives. Today, a growing network of return migrants has been established, to foster a culture of cooperation and exchange of ideas. It also strengthens ties with people who live outside Latvia but are thinking of returning home.
