Important Notice for members

The EVU has withdrawn from the organisation and the AVI (Associazione Vegetariana Italiana) is taking full responsibility for the organisation of the congress.’

All (associate-) members, except the ones from the BENELUX Countries, are invited to pay into the above account in DM, using if possible a Eurocheque or a DM cheque payable in Germany. Send your cheques to the treasurer Heinz Kottkamp, Maximilianstr. 16, 76534 Baden-Baden, Germany.
