On Thursday October 22nd 2015 at 9h00 in the reception room of the hotel Marom in Haifa the president M. Dorel COSMA opened the board meeting. He welcomes all the participants and thanked Ameen KASSEM and the Albadia Israel Federation to have organized this meeting.

Ms. Doris GÎTA presents the new organogram for the years 2015-2019, made after the election of the general assembly in Nimes on august 2015.

Mr. Dorel COSMA congratulates all the new members. In accordance with the statutes there are the president, two president adjuncts, three vice-presidents, and the board. The new organogram can be found on the website of IGF (www.igfunion.eu), with the details about the missions of each member.

Mr. Dorel COSMA already sent all the engagement letters to every member of the board. It was very important that all the members know about all the letters and all the duties, that why each letter was presented on video projection by Mr. Mihai BERBUNSCHI who gives the details of each engagement letter.

Each member is expected to sign his/her letter during the meeting and to give it back to M. Dorel COSMA. During the next meeting each member will have to make a report about his/her activities.

Mr. Adrian PUSCAS presented the model of the calendar which is proposed for 2016. All the photos or texts can be changed if the federations send them quickly by mail to igf.romania@yahoo.com . The price for each calendar is 10 Euros. To be able to buy them, there will be a minimum of 50 calendars.

Mr. Nicolas CHARLETY proposes to add a page at the end with the agenda of all the events (festivals) in the member federations. All the members of the board agree.

Each year there are two board meetings and other events. There is one activity for each semester. M. Dorel COSMA reminds that it is very important that each member organizes at least one event in his/her country:

  • 2016       Italy and Romania (Gold Stars Awards)
  • 2017       Cyprus (end of July or beginning of august for a board

               meeting) and Switzerland in September

  • 2018       Lithuania (may) and Turkey
