At the Paris convention, Kirsten Lerstrøm shared a major achievement of LUPUS EUROPE over the year: the development of the strategic plan and what the organization is looking to accomplish in 2014.
She noted the three strategic drivers of the Strategic Plan 2013-2017 and how the organization will reach its goals. The first strategic driver is focused on PEOPLE WITH LUPUS in Europe who participate in lupus research and benefit from it. The second driver states: MEMBER ORGANISATIONS are enthusiastic and empowered and the third one: LUPUS EUROPE is heard and acting.
She continued by mentioning the current events and project the organization is involved in as well as the three main gears to reaching the desired LUPUS EUROPE goals - clearly defined communication strategy, fundraising strategy and the secretariat which has been in place since July 2013.
