AGM Invitations and Agenda

Notice of the 2019 General Assembly of the International Kiteboarding Association

This is to give notice that the 2019 General Assembly of the International Kiteboarding Association will be held on Saturday 8th of February 2020, via videoconferencing.

The Executive Committee decided to hold the General Assembly via videoconferencing, because class related matters like class rule changes are now discussed and decided during the class specific AGMs (usually held during the class World Championship), and the main agenda items of the General Assembly will be purely reporting. Also, videoconferencing is a good way to give a greater number of members the opportunity to receive updates and engage in the discussion about the future of our sport.

The date beginning of the year has been chosen to give National Class Associations enough time to make submissions based on the outcome of the World Sailing Annual Conference ending in November 2019, where important decisions for the future of our sport have been made including the inclusion of kiteboarding in the 2024 Olympic Games, 2022 Youth Olympic Games, and 2021 World Sailing Youth World Championships.

Date: Saturday, 8th of February 2020
Location: online via videoconferencing. Either Zoom or BlueJeans will be used.
Starting time: 11:00 UTC
