The 30th Convention setting a new milestone in its history

The EAP circuit seduces with its principles and proves it by attracting three new enthusiastic meetings, while also establishing itself in Croatia.
The work that the circuit has carried out in depth are reforms that were announced long ago, since Project 2020 was first presented in 2016, at the Amsterdam Convention by Pablo Cassina.
After 4 years reflexions, the 30th eConvention of Geneva can already be considered as a milestone in the EAP history.
The complete update of our Standard & Regulations that counts now 3 more chapters and 12 new articles.
