The Board of Euromcontact, responsible for deciding on the orientations of the organisation, met in Rome-Italy on 4th May 2017. The Board took stock of the activities run in 2016 and first semester of 2017, discussed and endorsed the priorities for the rest of the year. Nicoletta Losi, an Italian optometrist by education and former President of the Italian national association of Contact Lens and solution manufacturers ASSOTTICA, was elected new President of the organisation for a mandate of two years, renewable. Nicoletta takes over Helmer Schweizer, Head Professional Affairs Distributor Franchise from Alcon, who has been chairing the association from 2003 to 2009 and from 2011 to 2017. The Board also elected Marion Beeler, Secretary General of EFCLIN, as secretary of EUROMCONTACT and successor of Simon Rodwell from ACLM.

Nicoletta Losi’ priority for the next years is to support Euromcontact representing the views of the industry to the EU institutions, towards harmonisation of the legislation and procedures for the manufacturing, standardization and testing of products throughout the EU. Another priority is to contribute shaping the legislation on new distribution channels.
