From 2001 to the new elections held in November 2010, long-time Austrian Coaches’ Association (BÖFL) treasurer Stefan Nemeth volunteered to audit the books of the AEFCA and its precursor organisation UEFT in the capacity of an honorary auditor.
BÖFL President Willi Temper (left, Photo: BÖFL), who is going to take over from Stefan Nemeth to serve the European coaches’ body, used the 42nd BÖFL coaching seminar held at the VIVA Steinbrunn sport centre in late June 2011 to express, on behalf of the entire AEFCA Presidium and Executive Committee, his appreciation for Nemeth’s loyal commitment. As a token of gratitude, Nemeth received an invitation to an elegant dinner for two in a first-class restaurant.
