Regarding the participation, voting and candidate-nominating rights of the IWF members at the upcoming IWF Electoral Congress in Madrid (31 March – 1 April 2009), and with reference to Article 18 of the Constitution, the IWF Executive Board took the following unanimous decision:

In order to be eligible to vote and present candidates for election at the 2009 IWF Electoral Congress in Madrid, a National Federation must settle its membership fees (US$500 annually) for the last 4 years (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008).

Settlement of the outstanding membership fees must be made:
– either by bank transfer to the IWF before 15 March 2009

Delegates of countries failing to settle their membership arrears may participate but may not vote or present candidates for election.
