EDBF Extraordinary General Assembly report

13 November 2015
The EDBF members met at an Extraordinary General Assembly in Berlin on the weekend of 7th and 8th November 2015 to approve a major revision to the EDBF Statutes to bring them in line with the IDBF Statutes and to elect new officers and representatives to the EDBF Council.

Major changes to the Statutes include changes to the Council (term limits, changes in composition and number of representatives), changes to quorum requirements (to make it easier to get a voting quorum and act on business of the EDBF) and changes in membership procedures (aligning IDBF/EDBF membership and bringing it in line with other continental federations).

Results of the election of officers:

  • President: Alan van Caubergh (NLD); serving until 2017.
  • Vice Presidents: Ute Becker-Frenzel (GER), Kim Beckwith (NLD), Peter Jarosi (HUN), Petr Klima (CZE); serving until 2019.
  • Secretary General: Julie Doyle (IRL); serving until 2019.
  • Treasurer: Natalia Kravtsova (UKR); serving until 2017.

The position of President of Honour was added to the Board and Mike Haslam was elected to the position unanimously.

Under the new Statutes, Commission Chairholders will now become elected positions. Nominations for those positions will be accepted from national federations for election at the Annual Congress to be held in Rome in 2016 in conjunction with the European Nations Championship. If you are interested in becoming a commission chairholder, please contact your national federation to be nominated.

    Dear All I would like to take the opportunity of the SportAccord Convention 2018, to thank you all for the time and effort you put into submitting a new design proposal for the EDBF logo. Due to the quality of the submissions of which we received 14, it has taken the EDBF Council much longer to make a final decision. There was a number of really good ideas, but they were not always suitable for all mediums of print. From the initial 14, three were finally short listed with the preferred logo finally selected from Capture Design. The handover of ownership and intellectual property of the new EDBF Logo has been signed by the Capture Design Chairman Mr Li Dong and myself in a bi-languages version. The EDBF will release an Honor Certificate to Capture Design as the original designer/creator of the new EDBF Logo and will publish it on the EDBF web site, on the EDBF FB page and on the EDBF Instagram page. Thank you once again to all designers/creators submitting the 14 new logo proposals for the time invested into our sport. Claudio Schermi EDBF President

    World Beach Games, a new multisport events in the landscape of the sport. The World Beach Games will be held every two years following the edition being organised by ANOC in San Diego in 2019. The Sport Programme will be determined in agreement with the IOC and in principle no Olympic events will be included in future Beach Games. https://gaisf.org/gaisf-and-anoc-sign-landmark-partnership-agreement-on-the-future-of-world-beach-games/
