Dear EBA-Delegate,

At the RTM and AGM in Augsburg in June of this year, the holding of the EBA Convention in 2023 and 2024 was discussed. As we announced in our last “Letter to the Members”, there were no official applications for these conventions at this time. Therefore, the AGM decided to write to the members again whether they could integrate a normal EBA Convention 2023 as part of their national bonsai exhibition in 2023. Unfortunately, there was no positive feedback, except for the CBA, which offered to hold a reduced EBA Convention 2023 in Olomouc, Czech Republic, on the occasion of the national CBA exhibition. In accordance with the resolution at the AGM in Augsburg, this proposal was accepted by the EBA Board and the EBA Convention 2023 was awarded fixed to CBA in a reduced form in the absence of any alternative.

Many thanks again from the EBA Board for the willingness of CBA and its president Ivan Machacek to hold an EBA Convention 2023 in a reduced form. This is an important step for the EBA because no EBA member country has agreed to organize a regular convention in 2023.

So that CBA can successfully implement this event together with EBA, we have special tasks that have to be done by us. CBA knows our requirements, these are the implementation of the NTC on Saturday and the meetings of the EBA Board, RTM and AGM (EBA board meeting on Friday afternoon, the RTM on Saturday afternoon after the NTC and the AGM on Sunday morning). These requirements were integrated in the preliminary program and the offer was made that three exhibits could be presented per EBA member country. The problem of the delivery of exhibits on Thursday evening or Friday early in the morning for the EBA Members with long traveling distances to Olomouc will be solved together with the organizers.
