ECLA GENERAL ASSEMBLY (PARIS)
On 23 October 2016 ECLA will have its autumn General Assembly in Paris where the national association of company lawyers of France, AFJE, will be the host. On the agenda are the usual topics, such as communication, goals, possible projects, budget, etc. But also the Brexit and TTIP will be discussed as these matters may have an influence on the work of company lawyers. Many ECLA members will also attend the ICW World Summit which will be organized on the adjacent days after the General Assembly.
On 31 March 2017 ECLA had its Annual General Assembly in Rome, where the national association AIGI acted as an excellent host. The agenda of the meeting contained its usual topics, such as the annual accounts, communication, etc. There was also an intensive discussion on the goals, aspirations and future of ECLA, for which the new President Jonathan Marsh earlier made an appeal to the national associations. The outcome of the discussions, which took place in workgroups, will form a solid basis for further discussions later in the year. Stephan Barthe (Spain) was elected as new secretary of the Executive Board. The topic of young lawyers in AIGI was presented by a young member of AIGI, followed by an interesting discussion.
