Country Representatives

The Country Representative is responsible for the coordination of the IOAPA members and all the former participants of the IOA Sessions at the national Level.

Main activities of a Country Coordinator:

  • Maintain and expand an active national IOAPA network in order to work on different projects connected with the Olympic Movement in the native country;
  • Ensure continuous communication within the group with the goal of maintaining and building a network of IOA past participants;
  • Continuously improve activities of the national group (exchange good practices, principles, information and ideas);
  • Promote the Associations (international and national IOAPA) and recruit new members (ex - IOA Sessions participants);
  • In collaboration with NOA and NOC, work towards dissemination of Olympic ideals at national level.

We have Guidelines to help you manage your activities.

IOAPA Country Representative officer, Alberto Aragon Perez, coordinates the action among all the country coordinators, shares good practices within the network, collects the information from every country and puts it forward to be published in Arete, the IOAPA Newsletter. Please do not hesitate to contact our coordinator with any questions or comments you may have.

We are continuously looking for active country coordinators in order to spread Olympism around the world. If your country is not represented and you would like to volunteer for this position, please download here the Country Representative Form (word format)(pdf format) and send it filled to Alberto Aragon Perez (alberto@ioapa.org).

The intellectual and working potential of IOAPA is exceptional. With the motivation, ambition, momentum and valuable experiences of these interested individuals, we can take big steps forward, to new successes, at home and around the world. Below is the list of the country representatives.  If your country has already a country representative and you would like to get in contact with  him or her, IOAPA will be happy to assist you.
