Expert Committee

The expert committee for Europe meets twice a year and is composed of at least three full members of the association. It creates a network between European dealers, sales teams and manufacturers to constantly draw attention to opportunities and risks in the global market, and provide information on market innovations, thus giving the SOMM community the knowledge edge needed to succeed in the market. The committee is made up of individual employees of member companies. The association can transfer individual association tasks to working committees that are organs of the association. In the event of relevant developments, crises, or situations, the SOMM office can convene the expert committee to develop rapid solutions. All members are authorised to appoint people to represent them on the expert committees.
