General Assembly

After the Board announced its decision to postpone the 2020 General Assembly mid-March, we evaluated and discussed the feasibility to organize this meeting at a later date in 2020. We concluded that this was basically impossible. The uncertainty all over the world, the complications or impossibilities to travel by plane, the many different problems faced by the 42 FIFe Members, the financial constraints, which most of our Members are facing and mainly the generally expected second wave of COVID-19 in the second half of this year made the Board decide to cancel this year’s General Assembly.
The Board then discussed the date and venue for the 2021 General Assembly and decided this had to take place in Riga (LV), because down-payments already made could be used for next year’s meeting. Since the hotel was not available during the last week of May due to previous bookings, we decided that the date for the 2021 General Assembly would be Thursday 3 and Friday 4 June 2021. The venue will remain the same as was scheduled for this year’s cancelled Assembly: Bellevue Park Hotel Riga in Riga, Latvia.
By order of the Board,
Annette Sjödin – President
Eric Reijers – General Secretary

World Shows

The Italian Member ANFI, stating various reasons and concerns related to the COVID-19 situation, suggested the Board to postpone their World Show by moving all scheduled World Shows forward with one year, so ANFI would hold it in 2021. The Board asked all Members featuring on the World Show List if they were willing to move their World Show one year later than the year previously confirmed by FIFe. We were grateful to all these Members for their quick and positive reply. A few minor hick-ups were solved, resulting in the updated list of World Shows which can be found on the official FIFe Show Calendar by ticking the checkbox FIFe special events.
