Dear Members of the World Debating Community,
There have been some questions pertaining Worlds Council this year. Mr Neill Harvey-Smith, and the rest of the Council Executive Committee will not be attending Worlds at Koc this year due to certain unavoidable reasons.
I will however be attending Worlds as Chair and Council will run as scheduled.
There was some miscommunication with the organizers on my attendance at Worlds; however this has been cleared up. I would like to commend the organizers for their commitment, efficiency and dedication in ensuring the smooth running of Koc Worlds.
I would like to thank Mr. Ian Lising and Mr. Colm Flynn as World Council Member Emeritus for stepping in and coming up with a solution at what seemed like the most viable option at that time, given the circumstances.
There will be no need for an interim election, as through pro-tem leadership and subsequent appointments, pre-council will be conducted on 28.12.2009 and Council will be held on the 1.1.2010.
Attached below is the agenda for World Council 2010:
