The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) has announced the results of its 2021 elections, with the WFDF member associations voting on several open positions on the Board of Directors.

“I am extremely pleased to see a very experienced Board of Directors elected here which will, together with our capable staff, dedicated other volunteers, and enthusiastic flying disc community, confront the challenges and opportunities in 2022 and beyond. While the COVID pandemic is currently in its massive fourth wave, the further dissemination of effective and safe vaccines continues to challenge us to initiate and manage the transition back to a more normal level of activities, all while keeping within health and safety guidelines,” commented WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch.

“We are extremely pleased to have maintained the number of women on the Board at seven out of the eighteen members as we continue to pursue gender equality in our governance structure as well as in our competitive events. I also want to thank outgoing Board member Wolfgang Maehr for his long-standing contribution to the development of Flying Disc sports and welcome José Amoroso as the new Spirit of the Game Committee Chair.”

The 2021 elections saw the WFDF Member Associations voting on five positions on the Board of Directors and on the Ultimate Committee to serve a two-year term, effective 1 January 2022. The 2021 election was conducted online via a voting form using the Single Transferable Vote methodology where the positions were elected in uncontested votes.
