Intake periods (February 1 or August 1) for new member applications established
20 December 2010
Based on a proposal submitted by Ultimate Canada, the WFDF Board of Directors has established two intake periods for national associations/organizations seeking to become members of WFDF. As a result, all applications for membership must be submitted by either February 1 or August 1 each year, to be followed by a review of the Board (no less than 7 days) and vote by Congress (30 days). As noted by Ultimate Canada in its proposal, it was felt by the Board that establishment of intake periods would provide a predictable schedule which should increase efficiency of review for both the Board and National Associations (Congress).
