Statement from the ABSW Board regarding EUSJA
The Association of British Science Writers has been a member of the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA
), for many years and pays an annual fee for its membership. The ABSW is also a member of the World Federation of Science Journalists, the organisation behind the World Conference of Science Journalists that the ABSW held successfully in London in 2009. The ABSW is keen to ensure that there is added value to its members from belonging to such international groups.
On March 27 2014 the board of the ABSW met and decided that the membership of EUSJA is no longer in the ABSW’s interests. EUSJA has been notified of this decision.
The ABSW is in discussion with some other European associations with the aim of forming a new European Federation of Science Journalism.
President, on behalf of the ABSW Board
