EDA is sad to report the death of our former President Michael Kalmar who passed away this August. Michael was hugely dedicated to the field of dyslexia and to the development of the EDA. He was involved with EDA for several decades, as a Board member and later as Vice President and then President. Michael was passionate about building dyslexia awareness and advocating for those with dyslexia across Europe. His voluntary contribution to EDA’s work was immeasurable including many conferences, seminars, advocacy actions and enhancing the networking of dyslexia associations across Europe and beyond. The EDA Board expresses our sincere condolences to his wife Brigitte, family and friends. Michael will be missed by many in Austria, Cyprus and across Europe.
