*NEW* Members Message: COVID-19

Members activities to continue online

Dear colleagues

EuroGeographics is committed to supporting members through the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and I am writing to tell you about some of the actions we are taking to keep our membership activities going and to keep us all connected.

Our priority is the health and safety of our staff and members. As a result, all physical meetings have been cancelled until further notice and our staff will not be permitted to travel for EuroGeographics business until we are clear that the situation is improving, following guidance from the relevant authorities.

However, we continue to work!  Head Office is working remotely and can be contacted as usual by email, and all meetings will be held online. This includes any knowledge exchange activities and our 2020 Extraordinary General Assembly, which will now be held via webinar at 14.30 CEST on 29 April.

2020 Extraordinary General Assembly

Members will be sent details on how to join shortly. You will also receive papers on the benefits of membership and how we can further support our Permanent Correspondents. As well as these two agenda items, there will also be the opportunity to hear from members and Head Office.

Online programme of events

In addition, we will add to our online programme of events, webinars and knowledge exchange activities for the next few months. I will write again once the details are finalised. We want to do this to continue to deliver benefit to our members and also to continue to foster the network of exchange and communication which is at the heart of EuroGeographics.

Please check our website and social media for the latest news. We will also continue to publish our regular communications, such as the weekly policy news and members’ newsletter.

In the meantime, on behalf of the EuroGeographics’ team, I’d like to take this opportunity to send you all best wishes at this difficult time, and our hope that you and your families stay safe and well.

If you need our support, please contact us.

Best wishes

Mick Cory
Secretary General & Executive Director
