President’s Committee  and District Presidents’ Committee

The President's Committee and the District Presidents’ Committee were held online on 16 May.

Among the topics discussed by the PC were the activities carried out by the President and the General Secretariat, including 

- the organisation of the Round Table together with the Cultural Commission of PI,

- the participation and contacts made during the SAMF final event in Lisbon, 

- the contacts with the IOC, 

- the relations with ENGSO for the participation of the President of the Club Trieste Jr in the event in Cyprus,

- the next EPAS meeting in Strasbourg to be attended by President Pierre Zappelli, 

- the SportAccord meeting in Birmingham attended by the International President, 

- the meetings held for the AIOS association, 

- the PI's plans for the next Olympics as well as the report of the 'PI-Domenico Chiesa' Foundation on-line meeting. 

The District Presidents' Committee was organised online to fulfil their request to meet at least twice a year to make it easier for newly elected and confirmed presidents to get to know each other. 

All were present except the Presidents of Austria and Ecuador, both for justified reasons.

During the meeting, which was translated into Italian, English, French and Spanish, after a brief introduction by the President and the Secretary General, the discussion focused on the Treasurer's report, which explained and illustrated the reasons that led the International Board to propose an increase in PI membership fees. The proposal will be presented and voted on in Agrigento during the General Assembly. Some District Presidents expressed the economic difficulties of their countries.

The PC expressed its full understanding but underlined that the proposed increase is a little more than 1 euro per month (maximum increase) and it is necessary to allow Panathlon International to successfully continue its international activity and to disseminate its values in the world, hoping that the all District Presidents, who are familiar with the activity carried out by PI, can support this proposal to the Clubs
