Croatia becomes EFAPCO’s 14th full member

Welcoming Croatia into membership, EFAPCO President, Luisa Teixeira, said: “Our drive to secure ever greater recognition for the professionalism of European PCOs, is strengthened with the recruitment of every new full member.

“The Croatian Meeting Professionals Association has made tremendous progress since its formation in 2011. It already has 65 members – 41 full and 24 associate.

“The Federation represents all European countries in which there is a national association of PCOs, and we are in discussions with leading PCOs in a number of other countries who are keen to see the formation of their own national association so that they can also become actively involved within the EFAPCO network.

“We will all be looking forward to meeting CMPA members at future meetings, events and trade shows.”

The CMPA’s Vice President, Ranko Filipovic, said: “We’re proud to have been invited into EFAPCO membership, the first association in our region of Europe to join the Federation. Becoming a full member of such a prominent association is a major step forward in CMPA’s development and in the evolution of the Croatian meetings industry, especially when Croatia is about to become a full member of the European Union.

“Our association and its members will certainly benefit from the networking and experiences that EFAPCO members share with each other.”

The first CMPA Annual Assembly and Education Seminar titled “Understanding Meeting Planners” took place recently in Zagreb, while a chapter meeting is due to take place next week in Dubrovnik, where non-members will be offered the opportunity to join the Association.
