2. The way the president works for 2024 and 2025

The President of the EBA will work without compensation for his work.

– If someone wants to invite the President of the EBA to his meeting, the travel expenses of the President of the EBA will be borne by the organizer of the meeting to which he invited the President of the EBA and will pay him a fee of 500 euros.

– Meetings of the EBA Executive Board in 2024 and 2025 will be held exclusively via online services or viber and whatsapp groups, so we will have absolutely no expenses for Executive Board meetings, except when one of the possible hosts bears all travel and accommodation expenses, or if members of the Executive Board already gather on some other occasion due to the organization of EBA activities (EBA scientific conference and the like), so that opportunity is also used for a live Executive Board meeting.

– By 2026, the President expects to produce results that the EBA will present in the best light.

– In case the results are missing, the President will resign without delay.

-EBA wants to become the THE ALLIANCE of all European beekeepers, the membership fee must not be a reason for non-membership. In this and the next year, we will prove that EBA works hard and responsibly for bees, beekeepers and consumers and that it is worth being a member!

In this and the next year, we will prove that EBA works hard and responsibly for bees, beekeepers and consumers and that it is worth being a member! Best of all, EBA is an organization that brings together all beekeepers of Europe, to help bees, beekeepers and consumers together. We will find donors and sponsors for the work of EBA, and we will dispose of the money very rationally. As president of the EBA, I will work completely free of charge for the next two years, and only material costs will be covered for travel expenses due to the organization of EBA activities. If there are invitations from European beekeeping organizations for my visits, the organizer will bear the costs. The goal is to realize the main goals in the next two years, and if we don’t realize the goals, then we don’t need EBA! Let’s be proud, that we are members of EBA, EBA is the only beekeeping organization that will work diligently for the first two years without a membership fee, an organization that wants results first, and only then, if we are successful together, it will be a time for the membership fee and for new successes in the development of beekeeping”.
