A convention of the LUPUS EUROPE member countries takes place once a year in a different country.

Each member country sends a delegate (in general the international contact) to this Annual Convention,
so that its voting rights can be exercised in council.

The annual convention comprises a social programme, medical lectures and business sessions.

During the annual meeting the delegates let the others know what is going on in each country, present successes, discuss failures, bring up ideas of new ways to follow and enjoy the great network for our mutual inspiration in the years to come.
This part of presenting the national reports are done in writing and by “show and tell”.

Convention also bring the opportunity to address relevant, actual and most present topics in our community on diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of our disease as well as how to/what to do when running a national self-help group.
