The EXARC Board spent a weekend 21-23 November 2014 in the Netherlands for a Board Meeting: an excellent opportunity to get the Board and EXARC itself up to speed. Of course the EXARC Secretariat and Editorial Board were represented as well. We discussed the upcoming conferences in Ireland and Austria, the website, Journal and much more. The Board also witnessed some Dutch folklore comparing that with other European examples. Starting in January in Ireland, we expect 2015 to be a very active and interesting year for EXARC, its members and the Board.
