EFA has appointed three new members to its Board after members voted in favour of extending the Board to include one extra representative at its Annual General Assembly in Amsterdam on 19th November 2015.


Fundraising association representatives Eduard Marček of the Slovak Fundraising Centre, Pia Tornikoski of Va La ry (Finland) and Astrid von Soosten of Deutscher Fundraising Verband (Germany) have been appointed to the now 7-strong Board, whose remit is to advance fundraising expertise across Europe.


The appointees join fellow Board members President Günther Lutschinger (Austria), Andrea Caracciolo di Feroleto (Italy), Maria Ros Jernberg (Sweden) and Daniel Fluskey (UK).


“We are delighted to welcome three distinguished and highly experienced fundraising experts to EFA’s Board,” says EFA President, Günther Lutschinger. 


“The European Fundraising Association is a network for learning and sharing best practice in fundraising.  Eduard, Pia and Astrid all bring much sought after knowledge and experience of the fundraising profession and will be able to guide our future direction."


He adds: “We are immensely grateful to Becky Gilbert and Svitlana Kuts for their contributions to EFA’s Board in recent years.”


Former Vice President, Becky Gilbert (Germany) and Svitlana Kuts (Ukraine)  stepped down from the Board at the end of their 6-year term.
