Members elect a new WDSF Presidium27/07/2021 read more ...
On Sunday 1st August 2021 the WDSF Professional Division (WDSF PD) hosted the first ever online elective Annual General Meeting (AGM). WDSF PD used the Zoom application to facilitate the 2021 online AGM and elections.
As per decision of the WDSF PD Presidium Management Board (WDSF PD MB) the wider public was invited to follow the discussions and elections via live stream broadcasted on WDSF’s DanceSport Total Youtube channel.
In total, 41 WDSF PD members were present during this AGM, exercising 82 votes. The voting delegates elected the following WDSF PD Presidium MB members with a mandate for a 4 years term:
• Verena Sulek (Slovenia) as PD Director.
• Davide Cacciari (Italy)
• Timo Kulczak (Germany)
• Alexander Melnikov (Russia)
• Mircea Gavrila (Romania)
Ms Verena Sulek, who was re-elected with the high support of 95% of all votes, said after the elections:
“I find it important and positive that two PD Board members are re-elected and 2 are new. This assures the continuity on one side and brings fresh perspectives on the other hand. I am also glad that the elected members are representing the countries with the highest number of couples and with the most distinguished organisers of PD Championships and Super Grand Prix competitions. This encourages me in my belief that during our next 4-year term the PD can help transform and upgrade the whole WDSF competition system, including the PD. Inside the WDSF system we should pay more attention to the succession planning of all couples during their active careers. This will bring them personal growth, competitive success and better planned career development. It will also accelerate a more natural flow of the couples through the system. We see many good and talented couples continue too long in WDSF General Division, missing out on the opportunity to advance and expand their careers in PD”.
