The MILSET Family is celebrating its 30th Anniversary
Back in 1987, MILSET had its debute in my home town Québec City (Canada), during the 1st MILSET Expo-Sciences International. In this 30th anniversary, I wish to acknowledge the vision and spirit of our founding members, especially the leadership of Michel Bois, Jean-Claude Guiraudon and Adnan AlMeer. I cannot ignore the enormous contribution of our first president, the late Maurice Huppé, Executive Vice-President at Hydro-Québec, a company that financially supported MILSET from the very beginning.
My first participation to a MILSET Expo-sciences International was in Prague in 1991 as I was head of delegation of the Canadian team. That year, I was given the honour to be elected on the MILSET Executive Committee. Much to my surprise, this appointment opened the doors to a new family of friends, a family composed of much cultural diversity yet recognising the contribution of each individual. This volunteer base team has pooled their expertise working together towards common goals based on a common vision: Inspiring youth through science and technology initiatives.
In my previous function, as Executive Director of the Conseil de développement du loisir scientifique (1991-2011), I had the privilege to accompany the Canadian delegation at eleven ESI. These young students will be tomorrow's leaders and the future of our societies. They revived my passion and interest to fight for the place they deserve in society. MILSET must be open to their vision. I sincerely hope that some former participants of ESI will be involved in shaping the future of MILSET. We must welcome this eventuality.
Throughout all these years, I had the pleasure to collaborate with individuals of great value. MILSET is a great international family to be part of and I thank each and everyone for your involvement in MILSET.
Happy 30th Anniversary and long life to MILSET!
