ancien-membresIn the afternoon, at the kind invitation of its President, Colin Lustenhouwer, I was invited before a meeting of the Association of Former EESC Members. The basic spirit of the Association is, I would say, once an EESC member, always an EESC member. Our former members are ambassadors for the Committee and remain committed to the ’cause’ of civil dialogue, so I welcomed the chance to spell out my vision for the Committee and future relations between the members and their administration.
