Anneke is one of the founders |
of BAFA in 1986.
She has managed the BAFA accounts since then and even though a number of people now collect and manage the
subscriptions, we refer to her as the treasurer.
She reminds us when we are running low on money! And is the person to contact
are not sure how to pay for your subscription.
She is also fluent in Esperanto, German, English and Dutch, so she helps with translation and editing in these languages.
