The motto of the German presidency is “Resilience and Visibility of our Reserves”, which the honorary Presidency team – consisting of six other German reserve officers – will implement. They are supported by a Belgian and an Estonian reserve officer.

By taking over the chairmanship, the German Reserve Association is doing its part to make the reserves internationally visible.

Germany will hold the Presidency for the next two years, 2020-2022.

In the upcoming weeks and months, further information about CIOR, its projects and the German presidential team will follow.

– We look forward to the next two years. It will be exciting, said Secretary General André Roosen on the occasion of the handover.
