Congratulations for the 65th Anniversary!

On the occasion of its 65th anniversary, ECTA received many congratulatory notes.

A special one we received from our European sister organization.
We would like to thank EAASDC, who presented a banner at the ECTA convention on Saturday evening during the gala buffet through its President Claudia Kloid. The hands held out there symbolize in a special way the past decades as well as the coming ones. Every era has its challenges, together we will continue to master them.
We are looking forward to continue our fruitful cooperation.

Michael FRANZ
President ECTA e.V.
