Europatat has used its 70th AGM to elect Gilles Fontaine as its new president, while also taking on Domenico Citterio and Heero Gramsma in the roles of vice-president and treasurer respectively.
In addition, the organisation's accounts and a new Europatat strategy were approved by the members. This strategic plan, describing the vision and mission of Europatat, as well as the key fields of action and priorities for the next three-year period (2018-2020), will serve as the guideline for the association to serve the interest of the sector during the coming years.
Fontaine welcomed the new strategy, which will "mark a common direction to achieve progress in all of the major objectives of Europatat".
“I would like to thank all Europatat members for the trust placed in me," said Fontaine. "As the new Europatat President I undertake to raise the voice of our organisation on the international stage and to represent the collective interest of all members as part of the new strategy recently launched by the board.”
