I am pleased to announce that the new Moderator of the Tavola [Board]of the Waldensian Church is an old friend, Alessandra Trotta (pictured), who has held many significant posts always with enthusiasm, competence and humility. Originally from Sicily, she is a trained lawyer who chose to serve as a deacon and has been Director of Centro Diaconale La Noce in Palermo, (2002–2010) and from 2009 to 2016 was President of OPCEMI (the body that represents the Methodist heritage within the Waldensian Methodist Church). Last year she became a member of Tavola and this year she was judged to be the most qualified for the task. More in the Summer Review.
