raFfaele ChiuLli outlineS his viSion for the futuRe
Raffaele Chiulli this week launched his proposed Work Programme, outlining the vision for the future under his leadership.
Chiulli, President of the International Powerboating Federation (UIM) and of the Association of IOC Recognised International Sport Federations (ARISF), is the sole candidate for the presidency at the GAISF General Assembly on 10 May 2019 in Gold Coast, Australia.
In his proposed Work Programme, Chiulli laid out the key actions, which largely reflect the views and concerns of GAISF Members and stakeholders.
In summary here they are:
- Keeping on working to serve and promote the common interests of its members with integrity and transparency
- Strengthening the role of GAISF as a services-based organisation, whilst continuing to increase good governance, acting as best practice for its members
- Leading this prestigious organisation towards its position among the world’s most respected sport governing bodies.
- Promoting and implementing youth development programmes and social responsibility initiatives as a cornerstone for the future. Sport provides education opportunities and has the power to unite in diversity, regardless of faith, race, culture, beliefs, gender and ability. At the same time, it is critical that GAISF members prioritise their environmental efforts to ensure a more sustainable future.
“Whilst I am loyal to the traditions, values and principles of GAISF, I also believe that we must be a modern and forward-thinking organisation. I believe GAISF can and should be a driving force in supporting IFs to achieve their goals”.
Dr. Chiulli said in his Work Programme, which has been sent out to all GAISF Members ahead of the General Assembly.
“Today, we have new challenges to face; the choices we make will determine the future of our Association. By working together openly and in a collective spirit of good faith, we can and will succeed.”
Dr. Chiulli is a vastly experienced sports administrator, having served as UIM President since 2007. He became ARISF President in 2013, GAISF Vice-President in 2015, and then GAISF Senior Vice-President in 2016.
The GAISF presidential election will be the headline of what promises to be a significant General Assembly for this history of the organisation. As well as key updates on the World Urban Games Budapest 2019, GAISF Members will also hear special presentations from the IOC, ITA, the Olympic Channel and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA).
The GAISF General Assembly will take place on Friday 10 May, from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM local time (GMT+10).
