  7. ECG General Assembly &...

As a European Association, ECG is legally obliged to hold a yearly General Assembly where the usual statutory requirements are fulfilled. This includes reporting from the outgoing board on the activities of the year, their formal discharge and the election of the new board for the coming year. In addition the accounts are presented along with the budget for the year ahead.

These official necessities are dealt with on the first afternoon ahead of a formal dinner in the evening. The evening concludes with the annual graduation ceremony of the latest course of the ECG Academy following some eight months of hard work. The next morning sees the Spring Congress part of the event and usually features the President’s Report and some interesting presentations before we host a panel debate which might include as guests Members of the European Parliament, representatives of the European Commission and local politicians. We conclude the formal proceedings with a lunch.

The Spring Congress is held each year, normally in May. Typically held from Thursday afternoon until Friday lunchtime it allows for the long tradition of a social programme which gives delegates and their partners an opportunity to explore the local area we are in and to join a less formal social dinner on the Friday evening. Many stay on for the weekend.

This is a closed event and is open only to ECG members as well as the graduating students of the ECG Academy and our sponsors and guests.
