Constitutional updates 2021

Overview on amendments

Dear ESPGHAN Members,

As discussed in our recent AGM of 2020, the reservation of governing roles for those residing/practicing within Europe was discussed and voted upon, with the vast majority in favour of the changes. The definition of Europe has been outlined within the document, and adheres to the WHO European Office list of countries (please click here for list). With this in mind, and in accordance with our Constitution and any proposed changes put forward, we are sending an overview document on the proposed amendments for your review. The document includes an explanation for each of the proposed chnages. 

Any member may submit written counter-proposals, to the General Secretary (via office@espghan.org), no later than the 1st of February 2021. The General Secretary will than present all members with the final proposed updated constitution not less than one month before the next AGM. 

The overview document can be found below.
