The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) announced today their first annual general meeting will take place July 10th in Las Vegas.
They will coincide with the World Amateur Championships and UFC International Fight Week.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Amoung the main topics to be discussed are the first board-of-director elections determined for the first time by member vote.
The current board consists of: Bertrand Amoussou (President, France), George Sallfeldt (Vice President, Sweden), August Wallen (Sweden), Tom Madsen (Germany), Frank Babcock (USA) and Robbie Olivier (UK).
“July’s Annual General Meeting marks a turning point for IMMAF,” IMMAF CEO Densign White said. “Established and driven through largely volunteer effort, IMMAF has required dedication, commitment, passion and hard work from its founding board.
“The existing team has scaled mountains to get IMMAF to where it is today. However, the principles on which IMMAF is founded are democratic ones: It has always been the goal that once the organization was firmly established, board positions should be opened up to members and to member votes. Democracy lies at the core of the Olympic ideal and, like other sports, MMA must also be represented by leaders as best chosen by the community.
“The fact that IMMAF can now plan for board elections is a sign of its strengthened position; and an accolade to the individuals who have worked tirelessly to bring IMMAF to where it stands today.”
