IOF President Brian Porteous to step down after the General Assembly in August

Posted on | March 1, 2016 | Category: News

In accordance with the IOF Statutes, member federations having members on the current Council need to declare whether they will seek re-election 6 months prior to the General Assembly. Ahead of the IOF CONGRESS and XXVIII Ordinary General Assembly on 26 August, 2016, in Strömstad, Sweden, the current IOF Council members have now formally announced who will be seeking re-election. Most notable is the announcement by IOF President Brian Porteous that he will not be seeking re-election, so the IOF General Assembly will elect a new President in August.
Seeking re-election:
Estonia: Leho Haldna (currently Sr Vice President)
Australia: Michael Dowling (currently Vice President)
Norway: Astrid Waaler Kaas (currently Vice President)
Hong Kong: Ting-wang ‘Dominic’ Yue
Hungary: Laszlo Zentai
Italy: Maria Silvia Viti
Sweden: Owe Fredholm
Switzerland: Niklaus Suter
Turkey: Tatiana Kalenderoglu
Finland: Mikko Salonen
Member federations now have the opportunity to nominate additional candidates for the IOF Council. Nominations need to reach the IOF Secretary General at least 4 months prior to the General Assembly, i.e. by April 26th at the latest.
