The GITTA Association

On November 16th, 2006 the association for promoting GITTA (in German "Förderverein") was founded at the Institute of Geography of the University of Bern. This new GITTA Association is open to every active member or sponsor interested in using, updating and/or promoting GITTA materials. The statutes, membership fee, contact person etc. can be found on this page.

The bylaws of the GITTA Association can be downloaded in German or in English. Consider that the English version is just a translation. Legal standard remains the German original. The minutes of the founders meeting are available in German only.
