Member organisations of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) will this week participate in a one-day Extraordinary General Assembly and two-day long Membership Gathering.
During Wednesday’s (16 November) Extraordinary General Assembly, IPC members will discuss and determine the membership status of NPC Russia and NPC Belarus.
On Thursday and Friday (17 and 18 November), attendees will receive progress updates from IPC President Andrew Parsons, CEO Mike Peters, and Chief Membership and Impact Officer Kristina Molloy. Members will also be updated on the IPC Strategic Plan 2023-2026.
Following approval of a new IPC Constitution by the 2021 IPC General Assembly, IPC Vice President Duane Kale will present the feedback received from members on proposed changes to the composition of the IPC Governing Board and membership obligations. These subjects were not covered in last year’s General Assembly due to Governing Board elections. Final proposals will be put forward for members to vote on at the 2023 IPC General Assembly.
An update will also be provided on the ongoing Classification Code Review, while members will be invited to take part in an interactive session on what more can be done to assist athletes with high support needs in the Paralympic Movement.
Over the course of the two days, three panel sessions will take place covering membership programmes, mentorship, and athlete representation.
