Please find below some information on the BWF Annual General Meeting 2023, which will be held on Saturday 27 May 2023 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It’s time to start your planning. Please see a few details on what you need to do now. We will send you more details at the end of next week.

Important Information

Here is some key information to help you get ready.

  • In-person Meeting – delegate(s) must travel to Kuala Lumpur to attend the AGM – no virtual option is available. It’s a face-to-face meeting.
  • Meeting Time – 10:00 – 17:00
  • AGM Travel Grant – each Member in “good standing” will receive a travel support grant for 1 delegate. We will send you information next week.
  • Accommodation – each Member must book and pay for accommodation at the official hotel. BWF will reimburse Members 3 nights accommodation for your Voting Delegate (if they attend both the Members’ Forum and the AGM).

If your CC has its AGM 2023 in KL, BWF will reimburse your Voting Delegate for 1 additional nights accommodation (so 4 in total if they attend the CC AGM + Members Forum + BWF AGM).
