A New Office Manager for AUD


We are happy to announce that Ms. Marielle Reiss has recently re-joined the AUD family, as its new Office Manager.


Ms. Reiss is not new to AUD. She first joined as an intern in 1997, when she showed to be a highly qualified and well prepared professional. It was then when Ms. Reiss became familiar with and committed to AUDís mission. This January she returned to continue working with us towards this mission.


A native of France, Ms. Reiss brings to AUD extensive international experience, remarkable knowledge of international relations, understanding of six different languages and a demonstrated commitment to our organization. She has been trained as a social scientist and holds a European masters degree in International Humanitarian Law, another M.A. in Foreign Languages and International Relations, a post graduate specialization in Democracy, Good Governance and the Rule of Law, and a French university diploma in Russian Studies.


Ms. Reissís working experience includes well known international organization names such as UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), UNDP (UN Development Program), the Council of Europe and many more. In addition to working in several European countries, Ms. Reiss has also given her services at the Eighth Assembly of the World Council of Churches in Harare Zimbabwe.


Her many qualifications and experience are undeniably an asset for AUD. We are all proud and enthusiastic to have Ms. Marielle Reiss among us and we welcome her in her new position at the Association to Unite the Democracies.
