It is a particular pleasure for me to be able to greet you as the new President for the first time. The Board of Directors and I have great plans for the Association of Historic Conference Centres of Europe. Essentially, we would like to move closer together, closer to the member centres and closer to you, our customers. Especially with well-established institutions such as the HCCE, it is necessary to think about reform and to infuse a fresh breath of air into all areas.
I consider it my task to confront this challenge and, with the help of all members and especially the Board, to make the Historic Conference Centres of Europe into a customer-oriented association, an association that not only inform but that also inspires! With this in mind, I wish you great pleasure when you read our News and send you my best greetings from Graz.
