BMC brokers discussion between UIAA and IFSC

Posted by Nick Colton on 06/11/2018
Ice climbing competition organised by UIAA

Ever since the IFSC split from the UIAA there has been concern, from some members of the BMC, that there is potential for friction between the two organisations.

In order to try and look into this issue, the BMC Executive Committee asked BMC member and longstanding volunteer Colin Knowles to be their special representative to try and broker an agreement between the two organsations.

To begin that process Colin organised a meeting in Paris on 30th October and the following statement was agreed by all present: 

"On October 30th 2018, Board-level representatives from the IFSC and the UIAA met in Paris, to discuss, in a constructive and friendly atmosphere, matters of mutual interest. A follow-on meeting is planned for Spring 2019. The participants would like to thank the FFME for hosting the meeting at their offices."  

The BMC wishes all those taking part in this process every success.
