Christian Ide (1991-1993)

Belgium

Christian Ide (1991-1993) In 1991 he accepted the presidency of CMAS at a very difficult time for the Confederation, leading it for two years up to the Elective Assembly of Cyprus in 1993.

Later he devoted himself with great dedication to scientific activities of the Confederation with the study and preparation of special courses to train divers in underwater scientific fields producing a manual on the subject. All his work was done in full respect of the values of the Confederation with which he felt deeply identified. When the disease made his activities too difficult to carry on, he committed himself to donating to CMAS Scientific Committee the results of his scientific research.
