3rd ANNUAL AGORA CONFERENCE

About 48 delegates, speakers and facilitators participated in the very successful 3rd Annual Agora Conference which took place in beautiful Bari, Italy, 26 – 28 September, 2014. Southern European countries such as France, Croatia, Malta, Cyprus, Italy, Serbia, Spain, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece were represented, but of course, speakers and representatives of other countries such as the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland were present as well.

The focus this year was on “ NATIONAL STRATEGIES FOR RHEUMATIC AND MUSCULOSKELETAL DISEASES” and “RECRUITING AND KEEPING VOLUNTEERS MOTIVATED”. There were interesting presentations and constructive workshops on both by experts in their respective fields. Once experiences and ideas were shared, thought provoking discussions ensued. Most of us felt that we gained a deeper insight into both areas.

Moreover, there was a press conference, the EULAR Osteoarthritis recommendations from a physiotherapeutic aspect were thoroughly discussed, Malta presented their implementation of Self Management / Partners in Treatment Course and a new Board was elected as it should be done every three years according to the By Laws . Mrs Souzi Makri was re-elected chair, Mrs Codruta Zabalan was re-elected general secretary, Mrs Marie Teresse Camenzuli was re-elected treasurer, Miss Adriana Carluccio was re-elected member, and Mrs Roula Angelidaki Stara was elected member (the only new member).

The Conference was conducted in a well organized, professional yet warm and friendly atmosphere. The members of the board of Agora, the Agora secretariat, APMAR and the host country, Italy, did a magnificent job in order to provide a meaningful and unforgettable experience for all the participants!
