International Alliance meeting 2012

A really great and positive last 2 days of the International Alliance meeting. The Alliance has a new Chair in Jeff Deitch of USA, and a new Treasurer in Carol Birks from MND Australia. Some great presentations from all countries. I presented on the MND Association’s Charter this morning, calling on all countries to develop their own Charter and to launch on Global Awareness day June 21st 2013.

The Alliance has a clear direction and the top 3 activities over the next 3 months will be to:

Start the process required for the recruitment of an Executive Director

Review of membership and subscription levels

A review of all policies held and standardising forms and processes.

It continues to be great to be the representative of the MND Association on the Alliance Board, and to be able to share experience and practice world wide.
