Brussels, 3rd November 2021 – The European Public Affairs Consultancies’ Association (EPACA), the representative trade body for public affairs consultancies working with EU institutions, announces the addition of a new member, Nemec+Chvatal to the association.

EPACA has worked for over 15 years to ensure transparency and trust within the public affairs consultancy sector in Brussels. Advocating for positive engagement and ethical lobbying is at the core of the Association’s work, with the aim of fostering an environment where the role of public affairs consultancies is valued, trusted, and held accountable. EPACA has a Code Of Conduct, an online e-tool, and offers training programs and events, to facilitate a consistent implementation of these core values in its members’ activities.

“At Nemec+Chvatal we are committed to providing personalised and tailor-made public affairs solutions to our clients, relying on verified information and facts. Our membership to EPACA reflects our willingness to strengthen these objectives and expand the focus and reach of our organisation,” said Vojtech Nemec, co-founder of Nemec+Chvatal.

“We strongly believe in transparency, responsibility, and cooperation, and we are looking forward to being a part of EPACA, an association that shares these same values,” added Viktor Chvatal, co-founder of Nemec+Chvatal.

Nemec+Chvatal is a young consultancy with Central European roots which recently opened an office in Brussels, offering services in public affairs and government relations, research and intelligence, and strategic communication.

“We are delighted to welcome our newest member to EPACA, broadening our representation and helping us further build upon the association’s work and priorities. Progress continues to be made to ensure transparency in the EU affairs sector, as demonstrated by the recently adopted IIA on a Mandatory Transparency Register. This is an ongoing priority for EPACA, and we are happy to have new members joining EPACA to contribute to this work, and look forward to welcoming more members in the future,” concluded Isabelle De Vinck, Chairwoman of EPACA.
