JM Working Group Procedures

JM Working Group Procedures

Aims

The working group should work for the developments within the EAACI with special interest for JMs, and with emphasis on getting JMs involved in as many aspects as possible in the EAACI. It will provide information to JMs regarding activities and developments mainly through our JM Website and e-mails.

The JM Working group should function as a link between the EAACI -JMs and the EAACI Executive Committee by bringing to the committee's attention ideas and requests coming from JMs, as well as informing the JMs of important decisions taken in the Executive Committee.

The main forum for meeting and discussing among JMs is the yearly JM Business Meeting held at the occasion of the EAACI Congress, where the JM Working group should give a full report of activities.

The JM Working group is responsible for the organisation of JM activities at the EAACI yearly congresses, such as the JM Poster Session and the JM Scientific Symposium.

The JM Working group is also responsible for developing contacts with similar groups in other organisations, such as the FIT in the AAAAI.
