Digital General Assembly 2021

Digitalisation

.... we all are getting used to the changes in digitisation as one of the direct results of the pandemic, but there is nothing comparable to being able to meet in person.

For the first time ever, the EFFS held its General Assembly 2021 digitally, with most of the Board members present in the Düsseldorf office. Hygiene and social distancing of course were observed and we paid special attention to wearing our masks when not seated. Everyone fortunately is fully vaccinated, but we are always careful in reducing any risk of infection.

The General Assembly lasted 3 1/2 hours this year and although the agenda was filled with many of the typcial parliamentary items, we took time at the beginning of the day to hear from our members. The overall situation has taken its toll on so many people with the mass amount of extra work by all during the most challenging times since last March.We thank each and every one of our members and their teams for the outstanding, continually professional support to all bereaved. We sometimes seem to go unnoticed, but we at the EFFS are tremendously grateful for all your efforts!

A feeling of the "new normal" could be sensed and we are hopeful to be able to hold the 2022 General Assembly in person. Our gracious hosts in 2022 will be the Norwegian Funeral Association and we will keep you posted on exact dates.

The minutes and documentation of our GA will be uploaded shortly to our members section.

Thanks to all members for their participation and hope to see you all soon.
