ERA AGM 2020

Part of ERA’s governance and corporate responsibility as a trade body is to hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) for its members in order to share and discuss the future plans and aspirations of the association. The meeting is a powerful forum for members to help shape and define the future business strategy of the association and for members to also understand how their membership support is crucial to the future of European aviation. As a non-profit making business, ERA’s work is funded by its members and the association’s core values (members first, commitment and passion, teamwork, professionalism and results) define how the ERA team delivers the membership benefits and services.

The annual general meeting usually takes place as part of the association’s high-profile membership event, the General Assembly; however, for this first time in the association’s history, due to COVID-19 restrictions and rescheduling, ERA’s team, Board and members embraced new communication methods and held the meeting online on 1 October. With no other options for members to gather in a physical meeting, this provided ERA’s team with an opportunity – and challenge – to deliver a fresher style of meeting.

The meeting started with two high profile speakers: Henrik Hololei, Director-General for Mobility and Transport, European Commission and Salvatore Sciacchitano, President of the ICAO Council, who shared their thoughts on the current industry crisis and future prospects for aviation. Following this, the official members only AGM started, covering items such as approval of the association accounts, minutes of the previous meeting, the association’s future strategy and business plans, and included the announcement of the latest ERA Board elections.
