EUSA EC members gather online

The Executive Committee of the European University Sports Association (EUSA) held their third meeting of the year online, with members gathering virtually on Monday, June 29.

After being acquainted with the Office Report for May and June, as well as the EUSA Treasurer’s report, the Executive Committee acknowledged a statement received from the European Universities Games 2022 Host City partners, who will prepare a full progress report on the organisation of the Games in Lodz, Poland by mid-August.

Due to the consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak, restrictions in travels and to secure the safety of participants, the EUSA Executive Committee unanimously decided to postpone the EUSA General Assembly, initially scheduled to take place in October 2020, to next year. An online meeting with member federations will be organised later this year, with exact dates to be communicated shortly.

The Executive Committee also decided that this year’s official EUSA celebrations of the International Day of University Sport and European Week of Sport will be organised in cooperation with the National University Sports Associations of Ukraine and Hungary in September 2020.

Documents regarding EUSA’s Incident Policy, Code of Ethics, Financial Regulations and Accounting Principles and Associated Members Guidelines were then presented, as well as progress reports of internal Working Groups, all of which will be approved at the next meeting.

EU-funded projects that EUSA leads or partners are ongoing and running despite the COVID-19 outbreak. The Executive Commission members were informed about the status and were given a report for each project. The members were notified that several projects will be prolonged for several months due to the current situation.

The EUSA Executive Committee will meet once again online in early September.
