    Not from me. I have connections/contact with a number of the various groups in the ME advocacy field but never had the opportunity, or saw the point, in trying to cultivate contact with IAFME.

    I don’t know if AFME will cover this at their conference. Weren’t they the main founder and funder ?

    Was it a fixed term appointment / is funding her salary dependent on multiple inputs ?

    there still isn't much on their website......
    no resources files whatsoever
    https://iafme.org/resources

    maybe slight disagreements re content? given AfMEs leaflets, am not surprised.

    Alexandra Heumber still named as contact on the website

    Didn't Sonia Chowdrey say she was taking a bit more of a back seat at AfME to concentrate on this IAFME initiative (last years agm)?

    in list who we are :
    "Forward ME (a House of Lors-led collaboration of ten ME charities) | United Kingdom"

    (typo in original)
    https://iafme.org/who-we-are

    Wonder if all will be revealed tomorrow at their agm.
