On 18-19 April 2013, the AER Press and Communications team attended in Brussels the annual congress and general assembly of the European Federation of Press Clubs. On that occasion the Brussels Press Club started its one-year presidency of the Federation. New applicant members were welcomed: Kiev, Jerusalem, Lille and The Hague.
This event was a lobbying opportunity for AER towards the presidents and directors of press clubs from all over Europe, as well as some Brussels based journalists. Following the general assembly, AER visited the new headquarters of Euronews in Brussels. Decision was taken to meet soon with its Chief of office to see what common projects could be implemented.
