Annual Meeting 2020

Event Description

The EIT Digital Alumni keep moving forward despite the ongoing pandemic. For this reason, our most important gathering of the year will be organized fully online!

November 14th is the date selected for an engaging afternoon of discussions about the current situation and future plans for our community.

The Alumni Board will present the state of the Foundation, explain three proposals to amend the by-laws, and introduce the candidates to the position of Technology Officer until July 2021.

After the official part of the program, the remote Annual Meeting will continue with community activities and a keynote presentation.

Make sure you join us, discuss with other alumni and let your ideas be heard!

To keep everyone up to date, we will be using Telegram throughout the Annual Meeting.
