The IFF held their annual AGM on 10th Dec 2010. At that meeting the IFF took the decision to recognise the GBFUA as an Ordinary member.
It has been a great few years for floorball in the UK and has been a complete turn around of the image of British floorball. The GBFUA and the IFF have worked very hard to promote the sport in the UK and we look forward to continue in this path. The GBFUA committee is delighted with this decision and would like to congratulate everyone taking part in floorball in the UK and in particular to those who have taken an active role in the development of the sport.
The IFF published the following point!
§ 7 Admission or expulsion of official member Associations
Mr. Liljelund informed that New Zealand have applied for ordinary membership in writing. The CB proposes according to Article 13 paragraph 3, that they would be approved by the General Assembly to become ordinary members.
The General Assembly decided unanimously to approve New Zealand as ordinary members.
Mr. Liljelund continued and informed that the CB has decided to propose that the following provisional members are automatically considered ordinary members, since they have been provisional for at least four years and have not yet applied for ordinary membership. These associations are: Brazil, Great Britain and Serbia, according to IFF Statutes, Article 13 paragraph 3.
The General Assembly decided to grant ordinary membership to Brazil, Great Britain and Serbia. The General Assembly decided to update the voting roll now to be 27 ordinary members present and 5 provisional member Associations and that a simple majority is 14 votes and a 2/3 majority requires 19 votes.
