Starting in 2007, the EFA Secretariat has organised an event in Brussels called the “EFA Members ‘Meet and Greet’ EU Institutions Training,” which serves the purpose of educating EFA members on the legislative processes of the European Union, while allowing them to interact personally with policymakers. In 2013 EFA hosted its fourth ‘Meet and Greet’ Training, which took place over one and a half days from 15-16 October. EFA Members gained a general overview of how the EU works and how its policies relate directly or indirectly to people with allergy, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) in Europe. They met and greeted representative from the Directorate General for Environment of the European Commission, representative from the Council of the EU, as well as MEPs from their home countries.
