A word from the President
Dear EFTA colleagues, Welcome to the 8th EFTA Newsletter. This edition marks my last one as your president, as I step down from my duties at the Paris Congress. It has been my very real pleasure to serve you in this way these past six years. I have watched EFTA grow in significance and influence, in helping systemic thinking and practice to become more visible in our communities and within our policy making organisations. This has been made possible by our developing collective vision and commitment to working across countries and training institutes and in honouring the work of all of us as individual practitioners and as members of different interest groups. I hope to see you in the Paris Congress where we will celebrate the diverse groupings that constitute EFTA and share our experiences of supporting our communities with systemic thinking, research and practice. Thank you all, and a special thank you to Fabienne Dardenne who manages and administers our Newsletter.
