SOCHI, April 18, 2013 - The International Press Association decided for the first time in the Association's history to establish the AIPS Media Operations project with the aim of actively engaging in the services provided to media representatives in all future sporting, cultural and high profile events, on a national, international, continental or global level.

Even in the midst of the current, harsh, worldwide financial crisis, AIPS has the potential to create employment opportunities for its members, with a strong background in major events, who wish to work in their home countries and abroad.

AIPS will bid for all mega, high profile events with the intention of either running the Media Operations Dpt or providing a wide range of consultant advice to the Organizer.

By taking this initiative, the rights and the working conditions of AIPS members in all future events will be best protected and defended, the revenues of the Association will be increased, whereas employment opportunities will be developed.

As well stated by the AIPS President, Gianni Merlo, "with an eye to the future, AIPS constantly seeks opportunities, which could yield substantial rewards for the Association and its members". 

Moreover, as a non-profit association, any revenue derived from the AIPS Media Operations Project will be invested in education programs for new journalists, as well as for AIPS experienced members, all around the world.

Following the unanimous decision of the AIPS Executive Committee and the congress, Konstantinos Vernikos, former AIPS Vice-president and Head of the Press Operations Dpt of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, has been appointed, as Executive Director, to undertake the responsibility of the AIPS Media Operations Project.
