EVANI Meetings

The EVANI Committee’s latest meeting was held in Belfast on 20th September. With our limited resources and team of volunteers, we don’t always inform members of the work going on behind the scenes.

With this in mind we committed to do a better job of sharing the work of the Association. Here are the phone, video and face-to-face meetings we’ve held over the past few weeks –
