EOSE GA and Members Seminar 2018

The EOSE General Assembly and Members Seminar 2018 was organised in Vilnius (Lithuania) from 12 to 14 December 2018.

The first day was dedicated to the official General Assembly. The event provided the opportunity to update on the main activities carried out and achieved over the last 18 months, to clarify the agreed amendments made to the statutes, to present and validate the Financial Report and to arrange the Executive Board elections process, as a result of which,Vilma Cingiene from Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) in Lithuania was re-elected for a further 2 year mandate, and Kirstie Simpson, Associate Dean at the University of Chester, Business School and Head Sport and Community Engagement, was unanimously elected as a new member of the Board for a two year mandate.

At the same time, the Board said good-bye to Mairit Pellinen, from Sport Institute of Finland, who stood down from the Board. She was thanked for her contribution.

The President, Prof. Thierry Zintz was happy to report a very busy and successful year and the full Activity Report and accounts were presented and accepted by Members.

Additionally, a policy update session was arranged to highlight the main priorities from EU Policies in education, employment and sport in relation to our mission and to highlight latest EU publications.

The Assembly ended with a special session and testimonials to officially announce and celebrate the retirement of EOSE Director of Development, Stephen Studd.

EOSE President, Thierry Zintz, said “Steve’s vision and strong commitment from the creation of the association with Jean Camy, Alberto Madella and Allan Pilkington in 2002 until today in 2018 have been essential in the development and sustainability of EOSE”.

Aurélien Favre, Executive Director, added “It is a very special moment as Steve is clearly associated to EOSE and vice-versa. EOSE would have never been able to grow and conduct so many successful activities without Steve’s support, dedication and commitment so I think we should all thank him and wish him a well-deserved retirement”.

On Day 3 of the seminar, Members were consulted on the future role and priorities of EOSE and discussed in small groups to identify concrete actions and potential opportunities, in particular to ensure the sustainability of the outcomes from the ESSA-Sport research and consultations that will come to a conclusion in autumn 2019 at the 1st EU Skills Summit.
