Friendly: In Paris, the Aveyronnais here and elsewhere prepare for the summer and the local market

With 65 associations, the federation of Aveyronnais here and elsewhere, renamed for a few months by the National Federation of Aveyron Friendly (FNAA, later FNA 12) which was created in 1947, held its assembly general on Monday, June 13 in the evening. at the Salons de l’Aveyron, in Bercy in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. A great Mass attended in particular by the faithful Senator Jean-Claude Anglars, and the new President of the Chamber of Trades and Trades Pierre Azemar, for his baptism. Surrounded by some of her “lieutenants” (Pierre Vincens, Martine Gasq, Gérard Paloc, Frédéric Lavernhe and Corinne Chavanon, with a respected parity on the podium), Marilise Miquel praised “the dynamism of all and the dedication of all the volunteers” . The president took the opportunity to recall the leitmotif: “Advancing step by step, all together.” You won’t have to rely on her to skip the steps!

Returning the mirrors willingly, Millavoise’s lawyer is rather “turned to tomorrow.” And the future of this federation, which has found a second life, a new breath, has the characteristics of the summer meeting of August 12 (read below) and the market of the Aveyron countries, including the The 22nd edition is scheduled for October 7 to 9 in Bercy. Philippe Picou, its director, set the stage: “It is the biggest piece of our calendar. In 2021, we were there, we got it. This vintage was a resounding success with many visitors, excited exhibitors and dizzying numbers such as the 9,000 trays of aligot-sausage served. We couldn’t have done it better, there was no more merchandise! “.

The next vintage is ready and Philippe Picou has introduced two new faces: “A ceramist from Valady and an illustrator from Villefranche-de-Rouergue”. But shh, he won’t say more … It was time to taste the meal of this “very positive” general meeting.

Or almost not. It will now be necessary to reconcile this observation with the past since the facelift began in March and the scaffolding will not be dismantled until the end of the summer.
  • Gérard Paloc, the emblematic president of L’Oustal, the association that precisely manages the rental of these spaces, has decided to cede to Marilise Miquel. He announced this on Monday evening during the great mass of the federation. The succession between the two Millavois will take effect at the November general meeting.

  • Corinne Chavanon presented the financial report: after a 2020 financial year marked by a deficit of 51,000 euros (no country market!), In 2021 she was able to smile again with a surplus of 37,000 euros.
