MEET OUR TEAM

Based on Rue Defacqz in central Brussels, the EACA team is truly European, bringing together people from different backgrounds and with a combined expertise in public affairs, advertising, marketing & communications.

We practice what we preach – with education being one of our top priorities, every 6 months we offer paid internships to fresh graduates who are interested to gain experience in an Association environment. We also cultivate a long-time partnership with the American University in Washington, D.C., often welcoming students for part-time practice in our office.
