ESCIF was founded more than 10 years ago now. The Executive considered this an appropriate time to evaluate what has been done and, more importantly, what needs to be done in the future.
During the last weekend Strategy group held a meeting in Lobbach to set the trajectories of the federation. The group consisted of the Executive board members and the following 'guests': Daniel Joggi, Chairman of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation, Urs Styger – the Sescretary of ESCIF, Frans Penninx board member of DON in the Netherlands and Fiona Bolger – CEO of Spinal Injuries Ireland. Rebecca Harvey led the Strategy group through its discussions as she has over 10 years of experience in evaluating organizations across many fields of activity.
It was a fruitful meeting and the Executive is currently working on allocating the most appropriate tasks for the medium-term strategy.
On behalf of the ESCIF Executive we would like to thank all the participants and especially Manfred Sauer who hosted the Strategy group meeting.
