Autumn 2020 Council meeting by Videoconference

In view of the uncertainty created by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Presidium decided to cancel the physical Council meeting which was planned to take place in Ljubljana (SI) on 14 November 2020. Instead, an e-Council meeting will be organised on Friday afternoon 13 November and Saturday 14 November 2020.

During its autumn meeting, Council should decide the annual budget and the subscription for 2021.

As we are in an election year, Council should also elect the members of Committees, other than the Disciplinary Committee, for the 2020-2023 term of office. epi members are encouraged to become a member of a committee and to actively contribute to the work of the committee. Enrolment as a candidate is possible on the epi website until 20 September.

The President of the EPO has promised to join the meeting; we are looking forward to his presentation followed by a lively discussion. In addition, time will be taken for other substantive issues such as the presentation and discussion of reports prepared by committees.

It is regretful that we cannot have physical Council meetings in 2020 because we all miss the social aspects and the networking that videoconferences cannot provide. Subject to the evolution of the pandemic, the spring 2021 Council meetings is being planned in Glasgow.
