General Assembly reelects Vice Presidents Neuber and Gesigora into office
At the beginning of November, the regular general assembly of the Willibald Gebhardt Institute took place in the premises of the Institute for Sports Science on the Leonardo Campus in Münster. President Dr. Heinz Aschebrock was pleased to welcome twelve members in the premises of the WWU Münster – after in past years the general assembly could only be held completely or partly online. The focus of the general assembly was on the activity reports of the board members. In the year of the 30th anniversary of WGI’s foundation, all departments were able to report on numerous projects, events, cooperations as well as active knowledge transfer into practice. And this both on regional, national and international level and across the departments of children and youth sports (Prof. Nils Neuber), health sports (Dr. Dennis Dreiskämper), elite sports (Prof. Eric Eils) and Olympic studies (Prof. Michael Krüger).
“The WGI is well positioned in all departments and has built extensive networks across the whole organisation. We have been able to win important new projects and partners, which is positive for the future,” explained Dr. Heinz Aschebrock. A highlight in 2022 was certainly the very successful “European Conference on Physical Activity and School Sport”, which the WGI hosted in October in Münster. For 2023, a reception is planned to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the WGI and to further intensify networking at the local level.
During the regular elections of the Executive Board, the members had to vote on the chairs of the departments for children and youth sports as well as finances. The four-year term of office is still running for all other members of the Executive Board. The general assembly unanimously confirmed Prof. Nils Neuber (Vice President Children and Youth Sports) and Martin Gesigora (Vice President Finances) in office. “All in all, a very harmonious general assembly,” Aschebrock was pleased to say.
