Committees and Study Groups of the Heart Failure Association of the ESC

To join a Committee or Study Group, you must be an HFA Silver or Gold member or Fellow of the HFA.

Applicants for all Committees will be informed once the committee members are validated by the HFA Board. 

The Committees and Study Groups are the heart of the Association. Volunteers from the HFA membership works together towards their various goals, producing papers, workshops, events and support to the HFA Board in accomplishing the HFA mission.

Meetings take place at least twice a year (at HF congresses and ESC congresses) with occasional stand-alone meetings when the workload and committee events dictate.
