ILSE Board Meeting in Belgrade

The annual Board Meeting 2007 was organised by the Serbian member association, the Red Cross of Serbia, in Belgrade 22 â€" 24 June 2007 combined with an Extraordinary General Assembly.

17 of the 22 Board Members were present and worked in a very harmonic and efficient manner.

At the end of the meeting all participants were invited to a sightseeing tour by bus through Belgrade including the beautiful Belgrade Fortress.

The meeting ended with a fine dinner in the inner courtyard of the oldest restaurant of Belgrade, the “Question mark (?)”, introducing everybody to regional specialties, both liquid and solid.


Several applications of the Commissions concerning ILSE publications, the risk assessment process, safety standards for swimming pools, procurement of lifesaving equipment and some administrative applications were discussed and approved.

The following applications for the organisation of the European Championships for Juniors were approved:

  • in Canet-En-Roussillon (France), 30/08 â€" 02/09 2007
  • in Eindhoven (Netherlands), 08 â€" 14/09 2008.
