Summary of the AEJeST General Assembly

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Dear members of the AEJeST/ETSGA,

Today 18/07/2018 the AEJeST has lived a historical experience; for the first time ETSGA has participated in an online General Assembly (GA) through the virtual platform Blackboard Big Collaborate. I thank once again the institutional support of INEFC for having enabled a specific space in this platform for AEJeST and for helping us to carry out the GA online.

Nearly 50 participants from 11 countries; guests from the African Traditional Sports and Games Association, also the presence of a colleague from Mexico; consecutive translation into English, French and Spanish. We developed 11 points on the content sent in different emails integrating a dossier with around 125 pages of information. The GA has been democratic, it has allowed us to vote, to admit new members (individual and collective), to recognize persons and associations who are examples of good practices and to show the richness of the great family (community) that constitutes the AEJeST.
