Please see the official invitation to the FIR EGM on Saturday 2nd February HERE
This EGM is being called for only one purpose: in order for us to vote to dissolve the current FIR that is based in Vienna and our statutes state we must call an EGM whose sole purpose is to dissolve the FIR. We are obliged to dissolve the current FIR in order to allow us to found the new FIR whose seat will be in Switzerland.
I have written a lot about why this is an important, necessary and exciting development for the FIR: Switzerland will provide a long-term, stable home for the FIR and having the seat in Switzerland along with many other international sports federations should present many exciting possibilities going forward.
I am particularly thankful for the efforts of Graham King in helping to facilitate this important step. The vote at this EGM in February will be the last formality in what has been a long and time consuming task.
Can all member countries please let me know by email, before 26th January who will represent their country at the EGM and if they are not able to send a representative then to let me know which country they would like to pass their votes to.
Duncan / FIR President
