Dear Members and Friends,

Summer is coming. And already today YAAP is proud to host the Co-Chairs’ Circle Retreat at the beautiful Neusiedlersee. Co-Chairs from 17 different international under-40 organizations will join the meeting and discuss how we can achieve closer cooperation and engage more with our members on a global level. We will also discuss whether the traditional under/over 40 division is outdated in today’s world where many decision makers within the users of arbitration are getting younger. We want to look for more opportunities to have a better seat at the “adults’ table” in the future. We will report on the results in our next newsletter.

There are three more summer events waiting for you: the YAAP summer drinks on 27 June and, of course, the Summer Retreat on 19-20 July (there are only a couple of spaces left, so do register if you have not done so yet). Before the ‘summer break’, we will meet for one last Round Table on 19 June – we are looking forward to seeing you there.

Also, as some of you might have heard already, we will be looking for two new Advisory Board members starting their term in 2020. A formal call for applications will follow. Meanwhile, if this sounds interesting to you, we kindly invite you to come and join our events and get involved.

REVIEW: YAAP Round Table Special: "Meet your Case Manager", Vienna, 8 May 2019

In a special Round Table on 8 May co-organized by YAAP jointly with Milan Chamber of Arbitration (CAM), German Arbitration Institute (DIS), Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) and Vienna International Arbitral Centre (VIAC), YAAP members had the opportunity to “speed-date” senior case managers from these four institutions: Patryk Kulig (DIS), Marina Nitrola (CAM), Evelina Wahlström (SCC) and Klaudia Dobosz (VIAC). In the relaxed atmosphere of the Viennese Café Prückel, case managers engaged in conversations on case numbers, arbitrator appointments, file administration and many more. Whilst the speed-dating format involved four tables and three discussion rounds, it was the participants who steered discussions by asking their individual questions. The event demonstrated that it makes a lot of sense – and, very simply, that it is a lot of fun for everyone – to shift much of the debate from the plenary to smaller tables.
