Engagement, Balance, Unity - Reflecting on 40 Years, Envisioning the Future

As many of you know by now, this is the motto of the fast-approaching General Assembly we are going to hold, hosted by our Portuguese member ACAPO, in February next year. So, with roughly three months to go, preparations are in full swing! This applies to all aspects that need to be in place by the time of the assembly: logistics, constitutional matters, the renewal of the EBU leadership and, of course, the programme of the event.
