The EUD President has taken the opportunity to reflect on the work of EUD in 2015. The excellent independent evaluation report EUD has received in 2015 demonstrates its effectiveness.. He shared his gratitude towards the EUD staff, board members and the members of the National Associations of the Deaf. During the General Assembly, several topics were discussed but the most controversial one was the structure of the membership fees with which the NADs contribute to EUD. The NADs have rejected all the proposals and opted for further investigation before next GA in Malta (2017) in order to make sure that the future of EUD remains financially sustainable in the future and can continue to carry out its advocacy for deaf and hard of hearing people.

Also we have had our opportunity to witness the the signing of the WFD Congress contract between FNSF (France) and WFD for the next WFD Congress in Paris, France in 2019.
