Thank you, Tim Guldimann!

Tim Guldimann was our OSA National Councillor from October 2015. He unexpectedly stepped down on 15 March. That is regrettable but, of course, we must respect his decision. In his role as National Councillor, Tim Guldimann was a standard-bearer for the Swiss Abroad, a visible symbol playing an extremely important role for us which he carried out impeccably. He campaigned tirelessly on our issues, including e-voting, social insurance, bank policy and many more besides, and initiated and followed up many matters in cooperation with the “Swiss Abroad” parliamentary group and the OSA office. I wish to thank Tim Guldimann, who will continue to serve on the Council of the Swiss Abroad, most sincerely on behalf of the OSA.

Remo Gysin, President of the OSA

    ... dann wäre es schön, wenn man an dieser Stelle auch mal erfahren würde, was
    Tim Guldimann für uns Auslandschweizer erreicht hatte! Ich hatte ihn immer nur als «Mitsitzer» wahrgenommen und ich staune, dass man seinen Wegzug überhaupt bemerkt – oder bedauert! Seine frühere Tätigkeit als Botschafter und Bundesratbeauftragter darf nicht dazu verleiten, sich vor ihm immer noch zu verbeugen! Was früher war, war früher! Ich schaue auf das «jetzt»... Nichts für Ungut!
