The Management Committee of the European Public Affairs Consultancies’ Association has unanimously elected Isabelle De Vinck as the new chairwoman of EPACA. Isabelle will be the fourth chair since the association was founded in 2005.

EPACA wishes to express its gratitude to former chairman Karl Isaksson and former secretary Maybrit Thøgersen for the outstanding work they have done while managing the association over the past six years. The new leadership will build on EPACA’s strong foundations by continuing to create a real added value for its members and by committing to the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.

“For many years EPACA has promoted ethical and transparent lobbying in the EU. Transparency is our way of showing that we have nothing to hide. To the contrary, we are professionals who are good at what we do, and we are rightfully proud of that. We will continue to work closely together with the EU institutions in our pursuit of a mandatory transparency register and will maintain a state of the art code of conduct to ensure our profession makes a positive contribution to democracy and allows for better decision-making”, says Isabelle De Vinck, Chairwoman of EPACA.
