PROPOSAL FROM NORWAY
The Norwegian Sportsjournalists Association propose the folllowing
change in the UEPS statutes:
"The board of the UEPS shall consist of 8 members: President,
vice-president, secretary-general, treasurer and 4 council members. The
election procedure shall follow the same schedule as for AIPS. The
president can be re-elected two times, he can have the position for a
maximum 12 years."
The reason for this is that it is our impression that the work of UEPS
should be more effective with 4 instead of 8 council members. The UEPS
needs a more effective organisation and need to get more power. This will
be easier with a team that can have more effective meetings and where the
delegates know each other better.
INTERVENTION FROM NORWAY
" The Norwegian Sportsjournalists Association asks the Congress: What is the meaning with continental sections if they are not considered by the AIPS?
" AIPS has to strengthen their continental sections if they shall be effective working tools for the sports journalists of the world. It is our impression that it is AIPS more than UEPS that handles European matters. Is this a common impression? If yes, why do we need UEPS?"
