IRF 2015 Congress

The IRF will be holding its 2015 Congress at the location and time of the World Rafting Champs in Sukabumi, Indonesia (29 Nov - 8 Dec).

The Congress will extend over 2 meetings. The exact dates will be confirmed once the detailed schedule has been finalised but they will be some time between the 29 Nov and 8 Dec.

BOD and committees that want to meet will have meetings as well.These meetings will be to talk about what has been done, what needs to be done and any proposals affecting them.

The draft agenda for the Congress itself is (possibly not in this exact order):

  • Opening.
  • Apologies and establishment of delegates and the quorum.
  • Reports on Membership applications.
  • Report by President.
  • Report by the Secretary.
  • Financial report for approval.
  • Budget for approval.
  • Reports from heads of other Committees
  • Discussions and resolutions on proposals submitted by National Federations and the Board of Directors.
  • Election of office bearers.
  • Closing of Congress.

After Congress committees may have more meetings if they feel they are necessary.

Member Federations are reminded that any motions they would like to be heard must reach the Secretary no later than 5 weeks before the Congress so that they can be included in the agenda. Ideally send it in even earlier incase there are any isues with the proposal.

Candidates for any committees need to send a photo and a CV in covering why they would like to be on that committee. The sooner this is done the better, but it must be done no later than the 31st October.

Membership Fee reminder
If your teams are going to compete at the 2015 WRCs you need to be up to date with your fees! Or you will not be allowed to compete!

Take a look at "How to calculate your IRF fees for 2015" to work out what you owe. Email the IRF Secretary to ask for banking details or an Invoice if you need one. Payments can be made by Paypal or into our USA or Euro account. Smaller amounts can be paid in cash at the WRC itself but only with approval by the Secretary.
Appeal to teams!!!
We need your teams to answer Nada's (IRF Media Rep) emails!!!! 

To grow our sport we need to promote it! And one of the ways is to write articles about the teams, the events, river trips, guide courses and other interesting happenings.

This helps the teams too as it promotes their own profiles.

But we are not getting answers from them - so PLEASE speak to them and get them to reply and cooperate!!
MEMBERS - please forward this to all your own members. Thanks

Happy paddling and get wet soon,

International Rafting Federation
