THE GOVERNING BODY OF POLE - IPSF
View this email in your browser

The International Pole Sports Federation is delighted to announce that it has been awarded GAISF (SportAccord) Observer Status after the decision to introduce Observer Status for aspirant members was unanimously accepted by delegates at the GAISF General Assembly in Aarhus, Denmark, earlier this year.

The Observer Status allows new, young International Federations to take advantage of the GAISF network to grow and develop, and has been designed as the first step in a clear path towards full GAISF membership. Observers will be accompanied by GAISF in their development towards fulfilment of all criteria required for membership, such as increasing the number of members in various countries and receiving the required recognitions by National Olympic Committees or by national sports authorities.

OPEN ONLINE MEETING FOR NON-IPSF FEDERATIONS AND THOSE INSPIRED TO BECOME IPSF GOVERNING BODIES IN THEIR COUNTRY

The IPSF would like to invite NON-IPSF federations, associations and groups and individual to an online presentation and Question and Answer session to discuss the future of pole sports for national governing bodies.
The main topic will be what’s next for Pole after the IPSF gain GAISF Observer status. Join the meeting to find out what you can do for the future of pole!
