Message from the European Committee
Dear EUMA Members,
I am delighted to have been appointed the new European Chair of EUMA. My EC colleagues and I have just returned from the 39th annual EUMA conference, held in London where we enjoyed a superb conference focussed on Assistants being 'Leaders' of their profession. The topic and contents covered made us all think about how we, as Assistants, are the leaders of the future. And now I am privileged to lead EUMA in the future!
Thank you to all EUMA members for their support and I would like to thank the outgoing European Chairman, Maria Lazarou, for her dedication to EUMA for the last ten years. I have been given an enormous responsibility to take EUMA forward but with teamwork, I know EUMA can continue to achieve great things.
I look forward to working with you all.

EUMA European Development project is approved and ongoing. The main objective of this project is to gain more visibility and, therefore, we should take action on different levels. This way EUMA will create opportunities that will enhance its visibility.
In order to join EU projects EUMA must improve its communication channels. We can strengthen our European identity by using our own network.
We managed to create an effective and powerful team to support our Association. The team should have an encouraging role with the help of National Training & Education Officers (TEO).
