EASA Meditation Procedure

When one EASA member has a disagreement with another EASA member regarding the intent or spirit of the Association's Code of Business Practice, Governing Policies and/or Bylaws, or by conduct contrary to the best interests of the Association, the member may confer with EASA's Trade Relations Committee in accordance with the following procedure:

  1. Advise the committee chairman in writing of the disagreement and request the committee's assistance in resolving it. A copy of this letter should also be sent to your regional director.
  2. The committee chairman will require the originator to complete and sign a mediation request form detailing the circumstances surrounding the disagreement.
  3. When this form is received from the originator, the committee chairman will forward a copy to the second member to inform him of the disagreement with him. At the same time he will be requested to respond on a similarly signed form, a copy of which will be forwarded to the originator.
  4. After completed and signed forms from both members have been reviewed by the committee chairman, the chairman will attempt to mediate an amicable resolution of the disagreement.
