Executive Committee


The General Assembly, where National Associations and members are represented, meets once a year to fix the general guidelines of the association. It elects the Executive Committee (15 members maximum) biannually, who are well known personalities from the various segments of the vending industry. The Executive Committee decides upon the political agenda and technical programme of the EVA and adopts the position papers that serve as a basis for lobbying actions.

The Director General, Mr. Erwin Wetzel, implements the policies defined by the Executive Committee. The Director General is responsible for the day-to-day work, the management of the Brussels office and staff, the relations with the EU, the press and the general representation of the association and its members.
