Section in Foundation Albania hold a productive AGM

14 May 2021

Prior to the Annual General Meeting (AGM), from 1 – 8 April 2021, the four regions of IPA Section in Foundation Albania held their meetings all around the country. Based on the Statutes, 46 delegates were approved for the meeting of the General Assembly according to the rule of 1 delegate per 10 members.

The AGM was held on 10 April 2021. Due to the anti-Covid measures, the meeting was organised as a hybrid version (online with 6 small groups, both central and spread around the country).


We were pleased that the meeting was assisted and greeted by the IPA Secretary General, Mrs. May-Britt Ronnebro, the IPA Vice President, Mr. Kyriakos Karkalis, a representative of our sponsor section IPA Serbia, Mr. Zdravko Ɖurić, and the Deputy Director of our State Police, senior leader Mr. Albert Dervishaj.

The Chief of the National Bureau of Investigation, Ms. Aida Hajnaj, who is also a member of IPA Albania, participated in the central meeting group.

During the AGM, we strongly stressed our readiness and commitment for Section in Foundation Albania to become a member with full rights within the IPA family worldwide as soon as possible.

Although the Covid pandemic caused consequences all over the world, it did not stop our activities. We reached the number of 460 members, we set up new regional structures in Vlora (in the Southern part of our country) and Pogradec (in the South-Eastern part of Albania). In addition, we organised many humanitarian activities, such as blood donations, distribution of face masks and sanitiser for police employees, as well as sports and artistic activities and working meetings. 

We have been strongly supported by the Minister of the Interior and the General Director of the State Police.


As part of the meeting, we accepted the resignation the Secretary General, Mr Bilbil Dervishi, who is a candidate in the national general elections. His position will be taken over by Ms Ekeleijda Toska, who moves from her role of Vice President.

We approved the presentation platform of the website and official IPA page during the meeting, and launched our official IPA website on 12 April 2021, which can be found at:

We also approved the working groups for revising the statute of IPA Section in Foundation Albania, as well as the national regulations, which are based on IPA’s international documents.

We will focus furthermore on technical and organisational measures and aim to present our activities at the IPA World Congress.

Thank you to everyone who took part in our Annual General Meeting.
