EIPC elects their officers for 2 years ahead

9 February 2018

On the occasion of their Winter Conference held in Lyon, France on 1 st & 2nd February 2018, the Board members of the EIPC
held a Board meeting and after a closely-run ballot the following were elected to their posts.

Chairman – Alun Morgan
Vice-Chairs – Oldřich Šimek and Emma Hudson.

Keeping EIPC on the right tracks at all times, Executive Director Kirsten Smit-

one of their conferences, a truly international mix of both delegates and speakers
and with all the indications an industry going through a buoyant period”.
No sleepers there then.
