The Atlantic Forum steering comittee has appointed Mr Robert Vass as member of the Board of Recommendations per the 5th of December 2019. The Atlantic Forum is greatly joyed with Mr Vass joining, due his exampelary role for young professionals to make a difference and to prove that young people can achieve anything when mind is set to will.

About Mr Vass 
Róbert Vass started his professional career as the President of the Euro-Atlantic Center, a non-governmental organisation. In 2005, he founded the annual GLOBSEC Bratislava Global Security Forum. In 2006, he was elected Chairman of the Slovak Atlantic Commission and in 2008 its Secretary General. In 2016, as the whole network of organisations called Central European Strategy Council became GLOBSEC, RóbertVass became its President. 

A key part of the GLOBSEC success story is the fact that it grew out of a student project to become a major international forum. Youth engagement has always been an integral part of GLOBSEC's work and Mr Vass remains it's strongest advocate.

In 2013, the first GLOBSEC Young Leaders Forum (GYLF) took place on the side-lines of the annual GLOBSEC Bratislava Forum. It provided young professionals with an opportunity to discuss current challenges in international affairs, improve policymaking skills and network with distinguished leaders and experts. Atlantic Forum is founded by a group of GYLF alumni.

Board of Recommendation
The Board of Recommendation is a group of esteemed professionals or authority figures (professors, representatives of international organisations, global leaders, etc.) who agree to pose as the Atlantic Forum's advocates, in line with our #PastGen supporting #CurrentGen spirit.
