Last weekend's 3rd FIBA Europe Seminar for National Federations was a chance for officials from across the continent to get together and share ideas on how to better grow and maintain the sport of basketball across Europe.
One of those on hand was the Secretary General of the Estonian Basketball Federation Karel Loide. After wrapping up the first day of presentations and working groups Mr. Loide sat down with FIBA Europe.
There are few ties that bind as tightly as those created by working in the same profession.
Feeling a connection with those who make their living in the same way you do is true for athletes, insurance salesmen, firefighter, and for that matter, those that work behind the scenes in basketball.

The seminar, which ran in conjunction with the Secretaries Generals meeting, is part of FIBA Europe´s development programme focused on a number of projects which aim to assist the national federations in reaching their full potential.
