Just months after the formation of the first ever EuroLeague Players Association’s (ELPA), Bostjan Nachbar visited Las Vegas in order to observe the National Basketball Players Association’s (NBPA) Leadership Program
As per the announcement:
“Bostjan Nachbar used this seminar as a beneficial learning experience and gathered plenty of useful information for the continuous building and expansion of ELPA. He also spent a lot of time with Mr. Ron Klemper, NBPA Senior Counsel, who has been in charge of negotiating five Collective Bargaining Agreements between the NBPA and NBA.
In this way, he set the foundations for building a very strong affiliation with the NBPA who are already helping ELPA with their knowledge and experience, especially regarding its upcoming Collective Bargaining Agreement with the EuroLeague and future pension system for EuroLeague players.”
After the seminar Managing Director of ELPA, Boston Nachbar addressed the media and had this to say:
“We will continue to strengthen our relations with the NBPA. Kyle Hines, ELPA’s First Vice President will visit the NBPA offices in July, to meet their staff and learn about their interaction with NBA players. In the fall, Secretary General Anze Blazic and I will visit the NBPA offices, to discuss different tasks and player programs of NBPA departments and discuss future joint events. This way we will continue to serve the best interests of the players and assist them in maximizing their opportunities and achieving their goals, both on and off the court.”
