AOECS 25th Anniversary
The AOECS General Assembly 2013
This year, AOECS celebrated its 25th year of operation. Founded in 1988, the Association of European Coeliac Societies (AOECS) is an independent, non-profit organisation. It is the umbrella organisation of European national coeliac societies with currently 39 enrolled Member societies across Europe. AOECS represents people who are affected by the coeliac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) and seeks to collaborate with international coeliac organisations worldwide.
The General Assembly took place in Amsterdam, between 5-8 September 2013 and gave our Members the opportunity to meet in this exciting city. The hosting Dutch coeliac society went to great lengths to make the visit memorable and we were able to enjoy the city's many delights.
