IFC paved the way for the future of the sport of Cheerleading and this year's Cheerleading World Championships in particular at its Annual General Meeting held in Berlin on the 7th February.
One of the major points of business was the Executive Board member elections. Re-elected unanimously were Robert Huber (GER) as Senior Vice President, Liudmila Zueva (RUS) as Vice President and Secretary General, Dr. Thitipong Nandhabiwat (THA) as Director and Noralma Endara (ECU) as Treasurer.
Positive news was in ample supply in relation to the World Dance Sport Federation (WDSF). The IFC President, Setsuo Nakamura informed the delegates about the positive current status of membership and cooperation with WDSF and the associated benefits that Associate Membership with WDSF brings for both the IFC and its members.
