Promoters Committee: ten years ago...
On April 5, 2009, the presidents of the three first member associations decided to establish themselves as a Promoters Committee with the aim of legalizing EURAO.
So they signed a formal constitution document, in some cases very solemnly, as you can see in this video with IW5CGM.
Other members joined later on, reaching up to 13 associations from seven countries and two continents before dissolving the Promoters Committee in 2013, four years later, when the first Statutes were finally approved, the purpose for which it was created. Great job, guys! We remember those days with pride.
Approaching to EU institutions
Although EURAO is a global organization, most of its members are European and, within these, from European Union countries.
So lately the Secretary-General, EA3CIW, has initiated a round of contacts with several MEPs to introduce EURAO and amateur radio sector, explore ways of support and mutual collaboration, and protect citizenship rights.
It's still early to venture results, but the talks are on track and we hope to see some effects soon.
