For a third year in a row, EFA Annual General Meeting Business Session will be conducted online, after careful consultation with Members. The uncertainty of the pandemic and the exposure of our network of patient advocates to a COVID infection have been decisive to postpose our physical gathering for some months.

Our Annual General Meeting Business Session and Membership Workshop will take place  on 31 March 2022, you can register here

We will start the AGM business going through the annual report and finances of 2021 and an overview of the 2022 project programme.

We are thrilled that the AGM will decide on accepting new allergy, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients’ organisations to our EFA family, growing and strengthening our vibrant patient community. Following the business session, EFA will host networking activities for members and an afternoon Membership Workshop. The Workshop will showcase the 2022 Membership Survey, analysis of early results from Members and a brainstorming activity meant to re-imagine the way we relate, coordinate and move forward as a patient community.

Networking event in person in Iceland

After two years of pandemic, our community is awaiting to meet in person. EFA is organising a hybrid networking event for all members before summer. The event will take place online and in Reykjavik, Iceland, hosted by EFA Member Asthma and Allergy Society of Iceland. Follow EFA’s updates for confirmation of the dates for the 2-day event as well as a detailed programme.

We look forward to coordinating with all members to make sure that we can continue fostering strong working relationships through in-person connection, with the flexibility necessary to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety.
