The 51st GSH - Meeting of Members took place on 24-25. of May 2012 in Verona / Italy.

For the first time, the Meeting of Members took place in the non-German, European area.
The decision for the location also reflects the growing European orientation of the Güteschutzgemeinschaft Hartschaum e.V.(GSH) which is also documented in the meantime by the number of members from the non-German-speaking countries.

How far GSH can follow this trend with respect to the conference language, correspondence, etc. is just under examination inside the organization.
