Can you spontaneously tell, how many presidents AEGEE-Europe had so far? 25? 30? 40? 50? The right answer: 44. It started with AEGEE’s founder Franck Biancheri in 1985. Biancheri also had the longest term ever with three years.

Current President of AEGEE-Europe is Réka Salamon from AEGEE-Debrecen and AEGEE-Aachen. She was elected at the spring Agora in Bergamo in May 2016. Most presidents only held the office for six months. This was a result of several facts. Different from now, the CD cycle was not from August to July, but from Agora to Agora. So the elected CD members were in power right after the day they were elected. Since the elections were held twice per year, many CD members stayed for just half a year. The newly elected presidents were always normal CD members in the previous board. So they usually were in the CD for half a year or a year already. Half a year as president was then the maximum they could offer to AEGEE. In addition, up until 2004, CD members did not get money for living expenses in Brussels, where the CD lived since 1996. So, being president was not also time-consuming and stressful, but also expensive.

Here is the list of all Presidents of AEGEE-Europe – with photos of every one of them. In future, you’ll also get interviews with them about their life then and now. However, this will still take a while. Enjoy the list!
