Mr Jeffrey van Meerkerk proposed the approval of the Presidium´s work for the past 12 months 09/06/2019

Mr. Jeffrey van Meerkerk (NED)

Mr Jeffrey van Meerkerk (NED) proposed a motion to approve the WDSF Presidium´s work for the past year. Mr Van Meerkerk reminded the delegates the following:

Presidium transition was accelerated in Lausanne last year to administer our international federation in a new governance structure for an inclusive DanceSport community that expects a clear, correct effective sporting system that will operate every day, which is fair to the athletes and lets them take part in competitions with the same rules and the same standards in every country.

By the way, Ladies and Gentlemen, in my opinion it is that kind of work and that kind of sensible, clear transparent system that provides A TRUE “FREEDOM TO DANCE”!

We do not see them at work often, but we can tell that our Presidium has done this hard, time-consuming work to maintain and develop the WDSF sporting system around the world.

The Presidium changed as was promised last year in Lausanne, peacefully and cooperatively, and also met the other challenges of the past twelve months calmly, with courage and fairness toward all, according to the clear principles that the WDSF Annual General Meeting has approved many times.  

This weekend has confirmed for me again that WDSF is strongly led by our Presidium with dedication to our sport and to each of our countries.”

The motion carried unanimously giving the full support of the National Member Bodies to the WDSF Presidium.
