2019 AFEMS CONGRESS
From 6-8 June 2019, Helsinki (Finland) hosted the 2019 AFEMS Congress.
The Congress, at its 68th edition, was a great success: 115 guests joined the numerous AFEMS' Institutional and Social events scheduled in the agenda.
The General Assembly, held on 7th June, once again showed a great participation: 82 delegates representing 52 Companies and Associations from 19 different European Countries.
During the General Assembly, the AFEMS activities of the past 12 months were reported and the action plan regarding the next 12 months was presented. The Chairmen of the Committees and the Secretariat presented the progress made on projects under their responsibility.
Several presentations were illustrated by outstanding Guest Speakers. From the hunting-related themes – as discussed by Paolo Fiocchi (Università Statale di Milano), Heli Siitari (Executive Director at Finnish Hunters' Association) and Torbjörn Larsson (President of the European Federation for Hunting and Conservation) – to the more political ones – covered from the European perspective by Mauro Silvis (Secretary General of the IEACS) and from the US one by Richard Patterson (Executive Director of SAAMI). What is more, Mr Karl-Heinz Florenz, German MEP, talked about his 30-years experience in the European Parliament and his perceptions of the sector as Chair of the Biodiversity, Hunting and Countryside Intergroup.
The major event was also the stage for the election and presentation of the new AFEMS President, Mr Thierry Jacobs from FN Herstal, Belgium. Mr Torbjörn Lindskog was appointed Honorary President in charge of the external relations and maintaining the role as President of the WFSA.
The next AFEMS Congress will be held in June 2020, in Prague (Czech Republic).

More than ammunition: AFEMS' commitment towards sports, environment and social inclusion
Hunting and sport shooting are sometimes perceived in a negative way despite the industry's continuous commitment to positively impact the communities where these sports are practiced.

Activities > Legislative Committee
 

Legislative Committee

The Legislative Committee has been established to meet our increasing need to better manage the continuously changing legislative environment in which our members operate. It consists of a network of experts from the leading member companies, familiar with the legislative framework and process. It is headed by a chairman who is elected by a majority of the committee members and approved by the Board of Directors. Its mandate lasts for three years and is renewable.

The role of the Legislative Committee is to support the AFEMS Board in taking appropriate decisions and implementing specific actions required to tackle the challenges presented by the changing international and European legislative framework.

Its main tasks can be summarised as follows:
• to monitor, at European Union level, the legislative environment in the AFEMS area of interest;
• to evaluate the implications which new regulations, or changes to existing ones, can have on our business;
• to prepare recommendations to the AFEMS Board of Directors (or to anyone delegated by the Board on the issue) for strategies to safeguard the Association’s interests at all stages of the legislative process;
• to monitor the implementation of EU legislation at national level, providing support to National Associations operating in our field.
