Greetings from the President
Two main events on the second semester of 2023:
FEPEDA Annual General Assembly
Participation to WHF stakeholders meeting
General Assembly was held in Sofia – Bulgaria in October 2023 (and online for members who couldn’t travel). There was a good participation of FEPEDA member representatives from the organisations of the various countries of Europe. The members of Bulgarian organisations attended to the GA meeting and there were fruitful exchanges. The meeting was very well organised by Bulgarian organisation providing an excellent welcome to members. Exchanges between members highlighted the actions of the members for deaf and hearing-impaired children (see more details in the following pages).
General Assembly and Management Committee meetings has been held on October 2023 in Paris – France.
The meetings were held in ANPEDA offices, the National French Organisation of
Parents of Deaf and Hearing-Impaired Children.
Due to COVID situation, all the meetings were held on-line since 2019: the last
meeting face to face was the General Assembly meeting in Prague in October 2019,
3 years ago!
Members were happy to be together in the same place. Some members couldn’t
travel and attended the meetings online.
On behalf of FEPEDA I would like to thank you all for the good cooperation in 2020 and wish you
a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the year 2021!
