EuroGeographics announced European affairs advisor Léa Bodossian as its new Secretary General and Executive Director.

In addition to a passion for geography, Léa brings high-level representation, communication and management skills to the Brussels-based membership association for European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authorities. Her previous roles include Secretary General of the Airport Regions Council and a number of positions within the European Commission and Parliament.

Commenting on her appointment, Léa said: “Official national geospatial data and cadastral services provided by members of EuroGeographics are a fundamental part of our everyday lives – whether or not we realise it.”

“For example, they are currently supporting national responses to the global pandemic by delivering up to date, accurate data and expertise for government management and monitoring of COVID-19. We need to ensure these valuable contributions are widely recognised and understood so that all areas of society can benefit fully from our members’ activities and expertise.”
