First working parties constituted

on . Posted in News

The Expansion Commission and the Olympic Commission have been constituted as first IKA working parties. Now it is up to some specialists comittees to start working on the development of kiteboarding.

While the Expansion Commission is intended to help new national class associations to be founded and to make a proper start into the organization of their national issues, the Olympic Commissions task is to develop a strategy and format for the olympic games, that represents kiteboarding as an inidvidual sport.

With the likes of Michael Gebhardt, two time olympic medalist and Bruno de Wannemaker, olympic Race Officer, amongst others, the best specialists are now working on the task to get kiteboarding into the olympics, while officers from the national class associations of Germany, Great Britain and France will help interested groups in countries from all over the world to start their own national associations, run first national events and bring them step by step into the IKA family.

More information about the IKA sub-committees as well as scope of work and members can be found here.
