Betapsi would like to announce with regret that John Paul Muscat has resigned from his official post as President of the Betapsi Executive Board for 2016/2017. He has shared that the reasons for this can be categorised in two. Firstly, he shared that the excessive demand imposed by the role, in combination with the needs of this year’s Executive Board, is something normal which he would have been able to handle appropriately in a regular situation. However, due to personal issues, this being the second reason, he feels that leading the team at this point in time is impossible. To read more about this, please read the Resignation Letter attached below.
Following John Paul’s resignation, Betapsi held and Internal Election between the nine Executive Board Members, including John Paul. During this election, all executive members collectively agreed and voted that the role of President for the remaining 2016/2017 mandate should be taken by Betapsi’s Vice President, Valeriya Bonkova.
Furthermore, executive members anonymously voted for the role of Vice President to be taken up by Betapsi’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Michaela Scerri.
Although we are sharing the news of this resignation with absolute regret, it is a situation which we have no control over, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank John Paul for his great work within the Executive Board so far. You have pushed us ahead and guided us throughout this journey, and we are extremely thankful for that. Nonetheless, we are beyond excited for our upcoming events and initiatives, and with the guidance of our newly elected President and Vice President, we look forward to sharing what we have planned for the upcoming new academic year!
With the PRO position currently being vacant, please note that an EGM will be held next week, for which an official date, time and venue will be communicated through our Facebook page tomorrow. Any interested Betapsi members will be able to apply for the position.
