The remotely held online Annual General Meeting of the International World Games Association (IWGA) last Friday approved a new future strategy for The World Games, with overwhelming support.
IFMA was represented at the meeting by President Dr Sakchye Tapsuwan, Vice President Udomdet Sitabutr and Director Charissa Tynan.
According to the decisions ratified by the General Assembly, o Federations that are not members of the IWGA can still have their events selected by the AGM to feature on the programme of a single edition of The World Games – or of other events that the IWGA organises. These Federations are then granted temporary Affiliate status, as recommended in the strategy paper.
The Annual Meeting also approved the new Code of Ethics and the new Anti-Doping Rules for The World Games 2022.
This year’s virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) fell under a special dispensation granted by the Swiss government for 2020 only. The meeting went smoothly with no technical problems, and all 37 member federations took part.
