BWF puts four-term limit on president’s role, approves 30% gender representation in Council

During its virtual AGM staged in Copenhagen on Saturday (July 18), the BWF membership approved changes to the constitution ensuring “at least 30 per cent of each gender on Council and among the representatives from each continental region.”

The decision was in line with the International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s recent directive to its National Olympic Committees (NOCs) to maintain gender equality in decision-making positions by 2020.

The BWF Membership also passed proposals to include the Chair of the Para Badminton Athletes’ Commission on Council.

“I want to congratulate the Membership for passing the landmark vote to approve the constitutional change to ensure gender equality on the BWF Council and for taking another important step to improve our governance practice by bringing in a vetting process for officials of the BWF,” BWF President Poul-Erik Hoyer said in a release.

“The virtual AGM today has allowed us to complete our governance requirements to host our AGM every year before 31 July, but also to deliver some important decisions to ensure we continuously improve our governance practice over time.”

Hoyer also informed that BWF is ranked third in Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF)’s review of International Federation (IF) governance.

“This is fantastic news for badminton that we are doing very well in this area… it’s a great sign for the future of badminton and I congratulate everyone on these outstanding results.”

The international calendar is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In May, the BWF had unveiled a revised international calendar to salvage the remainder of the season.

However, with the global health crisis showing no signs of abating, many events were cancelled from the reworked calender.

    Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    – Someone does a search and winds up at cricketbettingtipsfree.org.

    – They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    – And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    – Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    – There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with cricketbettingtipsfree.org definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out cricketbettingtipsfree.org.

    It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.
