The 29th IFBLS World Congress wrapped up on June 10th in Nairobi, Kenya as one of the most successful Congresses with even more nations represented as delegates and exhibitors. There were 30 member countries represented and formed the IFBLS politics and strategies. Congratulations to AKMLSO for making this Congress possible. Hosting a World Congress in Africa has also opened up more opportunities for future collaborations with several other organizations and associations.
We take great pleasure in presenting the new Council for 2010 - 2012.

During the Congress we tried something new, the silent auction. Thank all of you who brought very nice items for the auction. We were successful in our fund raising efforts with this auction and we will look into the possibility of having this event again.
On behalf of IFBLS we are happy to say that the 30th World Congress will be in June 2012 in Germany.
