Board & Committees
Compared to many other industry associations, work within EAACA is organised in a very lean and responsive structure in order to ensure efficient use of our members’ contributions. The administrative team consists of three full time persons including the Secretary General, who oversees the day-to-day operations. Its overall strategy and work programme is defined by the Executive Committee, which is composed of one representative from each member company and meets twice a year. Operational decisions and content work is being carried out within three dedicated Committees: the Strategy Committee, tasked with defending the interests of the AAC industry on the policy side, the Technical Committee, tasked with developing standards and joint responses to industry challenges on the product side, and the Marketing & Communications Committee, responsible for promoting AAC and EAACA at national and European level. This structure ensures that member fees are not lost in maintaining a large administration but are used for maximum effect in relevant technical or lobby work that helps shape the European market for AAC products.
