Dear colleagues, dear friends,

As we all know time flies, and indeed we arrive at the final year of the second term of Presidency of our Norwegian colleague Anthony Wagstaff, who did a great job, especially with the link of our ECAM to our AsMA friends in Oslo and Prague, and now also to our friends of the Academy for Paris in September 2020!

Thus we have to vote for a new President-Elect at the upcoming ESAM General Assembly which will be held at the venue of the 2019 ICASM congress in Debrecen on 8 September at 6 pm:
Hotel Lycium**** Debrecen
Debreceni Gyógyfürdő Kft. | H-4026 Debrecen, Hunyadi u. 1-3.

Dear Brigitte, dear Vincent,

As President of ESAM I would like to express my deep sympathy for the tragic fire and damage to the Notre Dame recently. The fire struck at a symbol of faith, culture and beauty, not only for Europeans, but for the whole world. Of course the loss is greatest for all Parisians.

You and all our friends in SOFRAMAS are at the heart of ESAM, and I think I speak for all ESAM members when I say that we are all united in support for you all in our thoughts. Luckily, no lives were lost, and the Notre Dame will no doubt be be rebuilt to former glory.

This was a lively and fruitful meeting, with discussions mainly centred at improving the communication with our member associations/societies and associates, and with the wider public. We established a working group with the task to develop a communication strategy, to find ways for ESAM to be more visible not only through its website but also by using popular social media channels.
