Independent and non-profit organization, the European Historic Houses Association is the only organization able to stand for the private owners of historic buildings, their garden and their parks.
Consulted by the European institutions, the European Historic Houses Association is a foundation registered under Belgian law whose head office is in Brussels. The association is an umbrella organisation gathering 22 national associations of historic houses and 2 observer countries, which represents around 50 000 privately-owned historic houses. Our principal objective is to secure at the European level, favourable measures for the conservation and the sustainable development of historic houses. Some issues are considered as top priorities such as inheritance tax, low VAT-rate, energy efficiency in buildings and the illicit trafficking of cultural goods.The European Historic Houses Association consists of two bodies, the General Assembly and the Executive Committee.
Composition of the General Assembly
The General Assembly consists of the Governors of the 24 national associations (most of them are the Presidents of these associations or their deputy) who are either members of the European Historic Houses Association or observers. They meet once a year.
