The General Assembly is where WMA Officers and Championships are selected, Constitution and rule changes are approved or rejected, reports are given and special recognitions are made – WMA business is conducted. It was great to have this important meeting that was delayed for two years by Covid. More than 120 Delegates representing about 51 countries attended this year’s General Assembly on 4 July.
Some of the Officers are selected at each General Assembly which ensures continuity. Executive Vice President, Secretary and Vice President of Competition were selected this year. Alan Bell, GBR, and Juan Ordóñez, MEX, ran unopposed and were selected selected for Vice President of Competition and Secretary respectively. Lynne Schickert, AUS, was selected by the Members’ Delegates over Ian Richards, GBR, for Executive Vice President.
The Council honored Bob Schickert, AUS, Karel Matzner, CZE, and Doug Smith, CAN, with gold, silver and bronze pins respectively.
Status reports were given by Toruń, 2023 World Masters Indoor Championship LOC, and 2024 World Masters Stadia Championship LOC, Göteborg. Members’ Delegates approved the city of Daegu as our 2026 WMACI host.
