ESPGHAN SOPs for Virtual Meetings and Webinars
After the experience with the Covid-19 pandemic there is an increased likelihood that physical/face to face meetings will become restricted in number. Virtual conferences are a viable alternative, but their implementation is challenging. It is important to find a balance between feasibility and as much synchronous interaction between the participants and with faculty as possible. Additionally, all meetings performed in the name of ESPGHAN should follow a definite standard and corporate design to ensure the highest level of quality.
It is for this reason that ESPGHAN has created a guideline for all members who would like to or are forced to organise a virtual meeting or webinar in 2021 and beyond. To download the document, please click the link below.

SPAM ESPGHAN related emails
There have been several recent spam emails circulated which were quite elaborate and contained some information that made the approach seem legitimate. These mails were sent in the name of the ESPGHAN President and were a phishing scam, asking for payment. A sample text is included below:
Subject: ESPGHAN LOGISTICS SERVICES REQUEST
How are you doing?
Are you working or available at home?
Need your support with some urgent matter.
Look forward to your reply for more details.
Upon reply, the sender then requests a money transfer.
We would kindly ask all Members who receive such mails not to respond and to alert the ESPGHAN Office (email@example.com) upon receipt, or if you have any doubts about mails received that may not seem genuine, please feel free to check with the Office at any time. In general, ESPGHAN will never ask for payments in such a manner, but as the details included in these mails are getting more familiar, it is best to check before responding.
