Secretaries General meeting featured in new FIBA Europe General Assembly format

PORTOROZ (Slovenia) – The FIBA Europe General Assembly in Portoroz, Slovenia, this year, came with a new format, incorporating a pair of workshops aimed not only at providing insights and useful knowledge but also at the strengthening ties between European Federations.

The first such meeting chronologically was with the Secretaries General on May 10, where 47 out of 50 European Federations were represented.

The meeting was chaired by chaired by FIBA Europe President Jorge Garbajosa, and FIBA Executive Director Europe Kamil Novak with FIBA President Sheikh Saud Ali Al Thani and FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis also in attendance.

"This new format concept of a FIBA Europe General Assembly becoming more interactive and focused on knowledge sharing, is supported strongly by the President Jorge Garbajosa," commented FIBA Europe Executive Director Europe, Mr Kamil Novak.

"We think that it is something that has resonated with our federations and we strongly believe that it will grow bigger to become a tradition in the following years, to benefit European basketball."

The meeting consisted of a series of presentations by the FIBA Europe Office, followed by a Q&A session, before a workshop with all National Federations took place after the General Assembly session.

All presentations focused on providing expert analysis of development projects currently underway, along with explanatory notes of how Federations can access all available programs.

Also presenting to the delegations, were OWQLO, a startup offering turn-key operations solutions for sports organizations. There were also presentations by Carlotta Giussani on behalf of EOC EU Office about the Erasmus program and one by Mario Leo of Result Sport about Social Media – 'Far More Than Communication'.

The next General Assembly will be held in Latvia in 2025.
