That's how it was in Endschütz:
We had great expectations of this meeting. Unknown place, important decisions and decisions, all this made us travel to Thuringia with great excitement. And we were not disappointed. All good, that means in New German, but read for yourself.
It was a good decision to hold the anniversary general meeting at the Rittergut in Endschütz/Thuringia. The whole estate, especially the manor house from the early 19th century, is a gem. Still marked by a very eventful history of decline, the incredible efforts of the current owner Susann Schmidt can now be seen. With her special kind of obsession, she has managed to save this listed building from destruction.
In the end it was she who helped us to a unique stay. The highly decorated interiors, often in shabby-chic-style, the themed rooms, the reduced building services and many original surfaces make up the truly unique charm of this location. Also their efforts for our catering deserve a mention. The breakfast, consisting of homemade jams and regional organic products, taken in the seminar room heated by a fireplace, remains in the memory.
The election of the board
The most important decision concerning the association took place in the seminar room. The UHB e.V. has a new board. Two candidates for the succession of the departing former board members Thomas Knapp and Florian Langenbeck were found without any problems. For many years the two have been active as board members in the UHB and have written his success story.
Olaf Elias and Alexander Prenzel were elected as new board members. Together with Martin Häberle, who stood for election again, the three of them form the board of the UHB for the next two years.
The place and date of the next general meeting was also decided. The new first board member Olaf Elias will host the spring meeting on 4-6 May 2018 at his company headquarters in Marwitz near Berlin.
In this context, it should be pointed out once again that interested colleagues are welcome to attend this event. The exchange with colleagues is simply worth its weight in gold. A short registration at the UHB office is required.
The excursion on Saturday to Niederlungwitz, 40 kilometres away, was also very successful. There the Metzeroth family from Glauchau runs a remarkable mill and crafts museum. Christian Metzeroth the initiator was in his active time also a member of the UHB. He guided us knowledgeably and humorously through his magnificent monument.
25 years of UHB are now behind us. 25 more are to follow. So it was only logical to think about the future and the way there. In a committed discussion changes in the market for historical building materials were discussed.
(felt and actual) are shown and discussed. The topic remains, consequences will have to follow
