12/05/2014 Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2014


When? 12-13 May 2014

Where? Brussels

Who can attend? EPF members only!


Following last year’s meeting dedicated to the celebration of EPF’s 10th Anniversary, this Annual General Meeting marks the start of the effective implementation of our Strategic Plan 2014-2020.

This year again, the AGM will provide you with the opportunity to share your experiences and views and reflect on EPF’s development and your role therein.

Our yearly meeting is also the one occasion in the year for all EPF members to meet, exchange, and to celebrate their being part in an umbrella organisation that drives patients’ rights in Europe.


The programme is available in the right-hand column.

How to register?

Please use the registration form in the right-hand column.

All EPF members are invited to nominate one representative.

EPF will reimburse travel and subsistence costs in line with its reimbursement policy.


The current two-year term of office for five of the Board members Philip Chircop, Avril Daly, Anders Olauson, Susanna Palkonen and Tomasz Szelagowski comes to an end and elections for the board will take place at the AGM. Avril Daly has informed us that she is standing down from her role in the EPF board, given her extensive responsibilities at national level. We would like to thank Avril for her fine contribution to our work over the last 4 years.

You will recall that other board members, Vida Augustiniene, Marco Greco, Robert Johnstone and Stanimir Hasurdjiev were elected last year and are half way through their term of office.

If your organisation is a full member of EPF and wishes to nominate a member to the board, please complete and return the nomination form by 22 April.

Please note that applicant organisations to be endorsed at the Annual General Meeting that meet the criteria for full membership are also eligible to put forward a nomination.

A description of the roles and responsibilities of Board members is available here.

Background documentation and preparatory materials for the AGM will be sent in due course.
