EICAR News EICAR Events Invitation to the EICAR Annual Members Meeting 2017 Dear EICAR Member,
As decided at last year's Members Meeting there will be no classical EICAR Conference held in 2017. However, EICAR has booked a conference room for the 12th October 2017 at the ITSa in Nürnber and we will hold our Members Meeting there on 12th October, commencing at 15:00.
The Board will give you an update on the current situation of EICAR and our understanding on the way ahead for the near future.
We will put all efforts into the "Trustworthiness Strategy", which will require some changes in our current fee structure for corporate members which require the approval of the members.
lt is therefore of utmost important that as many members as possible will join us at the meeting in Nuernberg.
