<p>by Dirk Jarré, President</p>
<p>Dear Members and Friends of the European Federation of Older Persons!</p>
<p>I hope that you could all start the new year and decade 2020 well - in an enjoyable manner, being reasonably healthy, having plenty of optimistic ideas and pursuing nice plans for your personal future.</p>
I hope that you could all start the new year and decade 2020 well - in an enjoyable manner, being reasonably healthy, having plenty of optimistic ideas and pursuing nice plans for your personal future.
Due to the ongoing Corona virus pandemic, most regrettably our Swiss hosts had to cancel their invitation to hold the EURAG conference in Morges/Switzerland in May 2020. This also means that we shall not have our next General Council meeting in this or other Swiss city on 15 May 2020. Further information will be provided once the situation becomes clearer and planning of upcoming events will again become possible.
<p>The details on the respective arrangement are available through the General Secretary of EURAG, Dana Steinova. </p>
