Camille is the adviser to the president at Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionnel (UNFP) and an EU Athletes board member since 2017. With educational background in law, Camille is working for UNFP since 2013.
What are you trying to achieve as a Board member of EU Athletes?
I would like to contribute, at my level, to the continuity of the mission of EU Athletes: to convey this open-mindedness necessary to the members, the associations and the people working for athletes in Europe. To promote this curiosity about what our colleagues are doing beyond our borders. Being interested in others often makes us realize that we are not alone. I would also like to continue to raise awareness of the strength of the collective. The actions initiated by EU Athletes do not replace the daily projects and struggles of the members, but complement them on another scale. This complementarity is essential.
In your view, what has been the most important achievement of EU Athletes during your time on the Board?
Without a doubt, the ISU Case. The support that EU Athletes provided to the main people concerned – aware of the stakes for hundreds of athletes after them – marked a turning point in the visibility of the structure.
What is in your opinion the biggest challenge that player associations are facing in 2022?
To constantly renew ourselves, to live with the time and not to stand still regardless of our achievements. Moreover, to adapt to our members and to maintain our proximity with them.
