Dr. Jesús López Zaballos
EFFAS Chairman

Dear EFFAS Friends,

I have the pleasure to present the various activities, seminars and conferences where EFFAS will have an active presence in the coming months. 

I also want to congratulate the first 2016 CEFA graduates and welcome them to our EFFAS family.

During this year 2016 we will continue to offer more and more services thorugh the EFFAS e-learning platgorm, in which currently can be prepared the CEFA, CIIA and ESG Certificactions.

Finally, I would like to mention the excellent work of the EFFAS 'Commission on Financial Accounting ("FAC"),  whose contribution I consider fundamental to represent the views of European users of financial statements.
