In June, the EBMA board visited the EBMA office in Maastricht to talk about all aspects of our organisation. EBMA is now officially established as a legal entity in the Netherlands. The board has appointed members for diverse committees and new developments have been discussed. As a result, EBMA will also set up a special interest group around assessment in the light of ‘academics help academics’. The start of this group will be announced during the conference in November. We will update you through our website.
