The World Rowing Federation’s, FISA, Council has decided that the 2020 FISA Ordinary and Extraordinary Congresses will be staged virtually from 16 to 18 October 2020 as a consequence of the COVID-19 global pandemic. FISA has identified a technology that will respect the Statutes and enable delegates to vote on proposed changes to the FISA Statutes, Rules of Racing and related Bye-Laws, and any other issue proposed for a vote.
In the months leading up to the Congresses, FISA will stage a number of video presentations of the proposed changes to the Statutes and Rules, and a series of live video conferencing sessions for questions and answers.
Member federation delegates are asked to keep the three official congress days – 16 to 18 October 2020 - reserved for the final live, video conferencing and voting sessions.
