2014 Annual General Meeting 09/06/2014

Bucharest, ROU The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the World DanceSport Federation is less than a week away. On Sunday 15 June, delegates representing 54 National Member Bodies plus 3 Associate Members will gather in one of the many halls of the Romanian Parliament building to discuss and decide on WDSF policy. 

It is most unlikely that DanceSport's leaders will ever get to hold their meeting in a more imposing setting, as the 'People's House' is the second biggest building in the world - behind the Pentagon. WDSF Presidium member Vasile Gliga, who is a member of the Romanian Parliament, made it possible for the federation to count on the distinguished venue for the 2014 AGM.
