134 EBMT members attended the EBMT General Assembly Meeting in London, for an update on the EBMT's main activities.
The presentation of the meeting and the minutes can be viewed on the EBMT website: http://www.ebmt.org/Contents/Resources/Library/Generalassemblyminutes/Pages/General-assembly-minutes.aspx
Membership fees62 members approved the proposal to set the membership fees to 900€ per year for a centre.
Important information about the membership increase: This increase will go towards supporting the annual maintenance of the new EBMT Registry. Moreover, centre membership will be increased from 5 to 7 people, providing the opportunity to add a Quality Manager and a Lab Technician in each centre and therefore reflecting the importance of all those involved in HSCT. Last but not least, no fee increase will be applied for additional members to a centre or to Individual Patrons.
