Even though our association is spread all over Europe (43 associations over 18 countries), did you know that the main address of EA has changed numerous times during its history?
During EUROAVIA’s first years, the “permanent” address changed every time a new board was elected, so the official location of EA was in constant change. Its very first address was in Aachen, where the first central committee was elected. Seven years after the establishment of the association, finally the moment arrived to change the reference location to Paris, where the new central committee was elected (back then, the main board did not change every year).
After having changed location from Aachen to Paris and Delft, in 1989 EUROAVIA’s structure was changed, recognizing it as a European student association (and as an official European association), which meant having a permanent address independent from who was leading in that moment. New statues and bylaws were filed in Brussels, home of the first permanent address of EUROAVIA.
During 1999’s AMEAC, the congress decided to register the new statutes and bylaws in Delft, which became the new home of our group. Since then, the permanent address of EUROAVIA International has remained there.
