Dear BSPTS members,
I can finally send you some important information regarding the future BSPTS. Enclosed please find two documents called: International BSPTS Document I and International BSPTS Document III.
Document one is about the philosophy behind the new BSPTS (although the philosophy is an old one). Please read it carefully and many times as possible to get a fully understanding about what I mean.
Document III is about the final New Educational Plan, which basically shall not suffer further modifications unless you make me note any rare and contradictory point. The document includes some information about timing. Please note that there are some changes in terminology, something made to really break in some way with the past:
- The name Schroth will disappear from the name of the Society and from Certifications. It will be pure BSPTS Certification based on BSPTS-Concept by Rigo
- Instructors term change to Teachers
- As far as every course is not certifying about BSPTS but there will be a unique and final certification, courses take a new name of Level 1 Course, Level 2 Course and Level 3 Course
There is a Document II, which is ready but has still to be finally revised by my lawyer. This document is about the new Official Structure of the BSPTS and you will receive this document by the end of July hopefully.
What I can say now is that the International BSPTS Society will look like a Scientific Society but will have a ‘Business Society’ Structure.
The Organization will be externally:
Board of the International BSPTS Society
President: Manuel Rigo
Elected President: Mina Jelacic
Secretary and Treasurer: Garikoitz Aristegui
Members: Beth Janssen, Rebecca Harding, Marjan De Jonge, Lior Neuhaus
Active Members of the Society: All the current Teachers are invited
Associate Members: all BSPTS Certified Physiotherapists are invited
But the Internal Organization based on a ‘Business Society’, will be as follow:
Chair: Manuel Rigo
Co-Chair: Mina Jelacic
General Manager: Garikoitz Aristegui
Regional Chairs: Garikoitsz Aristegui, Beth Janssen, Rebecca Harding, Lior Neuhaus and Marjan De Jonge
Teachers: All current Teachers, grouped in Regional Groups, are invited to participate
Everybody will participate in some way and will have access to all the activities and numbers of the Society.
At this moment I cannot inform you more in detail, again, while waiting from final revision from my layer, but I am sure we will be able to work together, and will get agreement. I recognize myself as the main developer of the Concept, with very important contributions from my Spanish co-workers, but I recognize the big effort and contribution from all of you in making the concept well known in the world, so I think I have developed this new Structure keeping all of this in mine.
With all my best wishes, Manuel
