The IFSC Executive Board convene in Quebec today while 44 National Federations participate in a series of events and workshops. The Annual Plenary Assembly will be held on Saturday. Prior to this Delegates will be able to build meaningful relationships, engage in discussions and learn from presenters through planned workshops.
While the Executive Board meets today, the National Federations take part in two workshops, “Organising an International Event” and a networking event.
Kobinata Toru, Vice President East Asia of the IFSC Asian Council, will lead the first workshop with Kynan Waggoner, Chief Executive Officer at USA Climbing and Vincent Caussé, Director of Competition Department at the FFME. The three experienced individuals introduce three different approaches used in different countries to organise international competitions. Presenter Vincent Caussé says, “With this workshop we are trying to share practical information and our experiences; it is very interesting to see how each country has a different approach to organising events.” Kynan Waggoner adds, “It is an honour to present alongside Kobi and Vincent today”.
At 16.00 Delegates are welcomed to a networking event which allow delegates of National Federations to discuss common issues or concerns, approaches to organising events, etc. This will be run by Fréderic Marois, Sustainable Energy Advisor with the local government in Québec. The IFSC is strongly interested in providing a space for individuals from different organisations across the world to connect and feels that this is a great opportunity for everyone to exchange their ideas and experiences.
