ISPE’s European Affiliate Council (EAC) leaders met, in conjunction with the ISPE Annual European Conference, in Frankfurt, Germany 26-27 May 2014. In addition to discussing future strategy and business planning, the meeting focused on leadership and growth initiatives to enhance member value as well as the success of ISPE’s European Affiliates. In particular, the ISPE European Affiliates are working to develop a more interactive cross-Affiliate collaboration to achieve greater impact in reaching goals.

This was the second of three strategy meetings the Society is holding in 2014 with the ISPE Affiliates and Chapters. In addition to the Frankfurt meeting, Chapters located in North and South America met in March in Tampa, FL USA, and the third meeting was held 6-7 May 2014, in Jakarta, Indonesia, with ISPE Asia-Pacific Affiliate leaders.
