Virtual AGM Videos – Council Proposals

The BWF virtual AGM 2020 will be held on Saturday 18 July at 1900 KL time / 1300 CET (linked here for all the details).

There are a number of Council proposals on the Agenda for the AGM (linked here – see items 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.) These Council proposals relate to amendments to the BWF constitution.

The Council proposals cover the following themes:

5.1 Voting Strength (removing Sudirman Cup from the calculation of the criteria)

5.2 Para Badminton Athletes’ Commission Chair for Council / Term of the President / Election Protocols

5.3 Judicial Provisions – legal framework for the Judicial Procedures (regulations approved by Council)

5.4 Council Geographical and Gender Representation – new Appendix I (BWF constitution) – representation on Council.

5.5 Vetting of Officials – new Appendix II (BWF constitution) – eligibility criteria for elected officials.

The AGM Agenda (linked here) has a brief rationale for each of these Council proposal. These videos are provided for delegates and Members as a further explanation of the proposal, and why the Council thinks these amendments are important.

Please send BWF any questions related to the proposals to Stuart Borrie [email protected]

We will respond to the questions and share the answers.
