25 June 2013. At the ENAT Annual General Assembly held in Ávila, Spain, the Full Members of ENAT approved the transfer of the ENAT Presidency to Mrs. Annagrazia Laura, Italy. There were no other candidates for the post.
Mrs Laura's appointment follows the retirement of Mrs. Lilian Müller, Sweden, who led ENAT since its founding in May 2008.
Mrs. Laura, who has been a member of the ENAT Board since 2010, is Training and International Relations Manager at CO.IN (Cooperative Integrate Onlus), based in Rome, Italy.
With a professional background in tourism and many years of experience in the Italian cooperatives sector, Annagrazia Laura is especially known for her commitment to improving services and conditions for people with disabilities. She is also a specialist in accessible tourism training and the design of systems for auditing and managing the accessibility of cultural and other venues.
In her address to ENAT members and the accessible tourism community at large, Annagrazia Laura states:
"ENAT will work hard to maintain its position as a recognised reference point for tourism organisations, national, regional and local authorities and other networks with similar aims and strategies. We will make greater efforts to engage with key organisations and decision centres, making our voice heard and representing our stakeholders at all levels".
