The European Association of Communication Directors (EACD) is the network for communication professionals from all fields across Europe. It convenes through the European Communication Summit (the largest of its kind in Europe), regional and national debates as well as online events. It was established in 2006 in Brussels to promote diversity, overcome cultural barriers and formulate communicative norms in order to ensure quality and foster professionalism in communications. In addition to its pan-European offering, the EACD provides opportunities for its members to convene both through issue-specific working groups as well as through regional groups. It also publishes leading content through its magazine, Communication Director. The Association currently has more than 2,000 members. As a service provider, Quadriga manages the office for the association in Berlin.
