五月 4, 2017: ETCMA Newsletter April 2017 – What’s new at ETCMA
We had a harmonious and strong General Assembly (GA) in Tel Aviv in March this year and were shown great hospitality by the IATCM (Israeli Association Of TCM). Of course, this year not all representatives from our member associations were able to travel to the GA. There were major changes in the executive committee as 5 members of the EC stood down from the EC and 4 new members to date have been elected.
I had the honour of being elected President and I am pleased to have such a great EC to work with.
Let me share some thoughts about the current situation of the ETCMA:
The ETCMA has a good standing. 同 25 associations as members representing about 14000 practitioners we are the largest TCM umbrella society in Europe. We are proud to represent so many, but it is also a big task to explain to our member organisations’ EC members and each practitioner that the costs required to fulfil and expand our tasks is a useful investment for all of us. We feel that the ETCMA currently has good interaction with the presidents and representatives of our member organisations and we will work to improve our communication channels .
With in mind we took the opportunity in Tel Aviv to work together on our new Strategic Plan for 2017-2020. We aspire to achieve a mutual ownership of our goals.
We want to share our insights on organisational, political and research issues as well as on burning issues like the regulation of Chinese herbs and China’s TCM policy in Europe. This will be done via newsletters, the website and meetings at the GA and TCM Kongress Rothenburg. The strength of our members is the strength of ETCMA.
We strive to support our member associations but we also need to find a way to reach the individual practitioner. We wish to support the daily work of the practitioner and explain our policies to make a safer future of our profession.
In spite of differing regulatory frameworks, languages and cultural assets, there is definitely more that unites us than divides us to work on!
Wishing us the very best
