Hello fellow unicyclists!
I hope all is well! On behalf of the IUF Executive Board and Representatives, I am very excited to begin work on improving, modernizing and strengthening the international unicycling community in the next few years. As a starting point, the IUF Executive Board held our first meeting a few weeks ago to begin discussing goals and priorities, the future of the sport and necessary improvements. Please take a few minutes to look over our first meeting’s minutes, http://iufinc.org/about/minutes, if you would like to see which specific areas were discussed. A few highlights:
– Membership: The IUF is looking to establish an official membership system by 2012. Many details are still being worked out, but we will keep you updated as we begin to put the structure in place.
– Post-UNICON Survey: In the next few days, UNICON 15 participants will be receiving a survey aimed to assist us in planning future events. Please take a few moments to voice your opinion!
– Committees: We are pleased to announce that four committees are already up and running, with a few more in the works. Rulebook, Convention, World Records and Skill Level Development Committee Chairs’ contact information can all be found on our website, http://iufinc.org/committees. Committee Chairs will also soon begin blogging about their respective committee’s progress.
– Website and Social Media: Thanks to our webmaster Gossi, the IUF is now connected to Twitter and Facebook! If you want to be even more up-to-date with the IUF, make sure you follow us. In addition, if there is any content that you would like to see on our new website, please let us know!
Thanks again for your continued support for the IUF!
President, International Unicycling Federation
