The Agendas, Supporting Papers and Submissions which will be discussed at the 2008 ISAF Annual Conference in Madrid this November have been published online on the ISAF Meetings microsite.
The 2008 ISAF Annual Conference takes place in Madrid, Spain from 6-16 November and will bring together the ISAF Council, Committees and Commissions along with other leading figures from the sailing world to debate, discuss and decide upon the key issues in the sailing world. The meeting papers for Conference are published online to give ISAF Member National Authorities, ISAF Classes and sailors all over the world an advanced preview of the issues up for debate this November.
Over 100 Submissions - proposals to either change an existing ISAF policy or introduce a new policy in the sport - have been received from ISAF Member National Authorities (MNAs), ISAF Classes, Committee Chairmen and the Executive Committee covering many aspects of the sport. These will be debated alongside the other items addressed on each Committee's Agenda at the meetings in November.
For ease, there are various options by which you can download papers - by a specific Committee, by Submission, by Agenda, by Supporting Paper - and the papers can be downloaded individually or as a bulk download, which is provided by a zip file download.
The meeting papers are freely available for anyone to access.
