News regarding recent ASIFA Cyprus updates.
On 20 March 2020, an online meeting took place for all ASIFA Cyprus members.
The meeting’s purpose was for members to discuss the purposes and responsibilities of ASIFA Cyprus within the Cyprus Animation Association and decide on its future operation.
During the meeting, Yiorgos Tsaggaris passed on the ASIFA representation to the ASIFA members, a responsibility which he had since the chapter’s formation, and recommended the CAA President to be the next representative. After collective discussion between the 14 present members, a 3 person committee was formed, consisting of Charalambos Margaritis, Michael Kalopaidis and Andreas Rossides (CAA President). It was decided between the 3 person committee that Michael Kalopaidis will be the next ASIFA representative, while the other 2 members will have consulting and auditing roles.
This new ASIFA committee will act as a sub-committee within the CAA and its role will be to ensure efficient communication between ASIFA and its members, explore all opportunities and benefits that may come from the ASIFA membership and communicate these with the CAA and all ASIFA Cyprus members, and work with the CAA board to assess how the ASIFA membership can best support the association and serve the community.
We would like to thank Yiorgos Tsaggaris, the previous ASIFA representative, for initiating the local ASIFA Chapter in 2013 and appreciate all his efforts and contributions in sustaining it to the present day.
We look forward to working together with the new ASIFA committee in creating more opportunities for the local animation community.
For any ASIFA related matters or to request membership information, please contact Michael Kalopaidis at firstname.lastname@example.org or any CAA board member at email@example.com
