According to a statement released on 28 June by the board of the European Air Medical Institute (EURAMI), all the members of the board have resigned en masse, declaring a lack of confidence in the Institute’s leadership.
In an open letter co-signed by Dr Michael Braida, Dr Bettina Vadera, Dr Gert Muurling, Volker Lemke and Dr Laurent Taymans, the board members explain that the resignation, which has immediate effect, has been prompted by a ‘complete lack of confidence in the current leadership shared unanimously by all members of the board’. The letter further states: “This has been compounded by outstanding conflicts with the EURAMI president, which we attempted to resolve, but to no avail. Whilst we believe in EURAMI as a professional organisation, the dissociation between the members of the board and the president has reached a point where it leaves us no choice but to resign collectively.”
The move constitutes the formal resignation of each and every member of the EURAMI board of directors.
