AETF Committees

During the European Championships in Spain, November 2021, at the annual Congress Meeting, elections (4 yearly) for the AETF Board and the Revisory Committee were being held. Master Virginia Dionisi was elected as vice-president, GrandMaster Frank Vanberghen was re-elected as chairperson of the Revisory Committee.

The newly elected AETF Board held its board meeting in Poland, January 15th. During this meeting the members of existing and new established AETF committees were elected. GrandMaster Frank Vanberghen was re-elected as chairperson of the AETF Revisory Committee, Master Annick Van Driessche was elected as chairperson of the AETF Women Committee and Benito Martinez was elected as member of the Inclusion Committee.

With this, members of ITF-Belgium are involved in both the Board ITF as AETF and committees of both federations.

ITF Policy on Harassment

Although due to the pandemic the ITF Board is not able to meet in person, since April 2020 the Board Members had a Board Meeting through Zoom every month, always on a Sunday morning 7.00 am CET, for 5-6 hours. A lot has been done and decided during these many hours, and also the ITF Bylaws have been revised, many ITF Policies have been updated or written, etc.

On May 2nd also the new ITF Adult Harassment Policy was voted after several months of work and 16 draft versions. Meanwhile a Children Harassment Policy is on its way.

The policy comes with an awareness campaigh against all kinds of harassment, to show that ITF has zero tolerance against harassment.

ITF-Belgium will implement the policy in its own rules, at this moment the Disciplinary Committee and the API’s are working on this.

The policy is published on the ITF website and on the website ITF-Belgium, in the section ‘Documents’: click here.
