Interesting = not knowing :)
A few points where I didn't find answers or have some thoughts.
+++ Congress +++
• 14.1. Amendments to the IOF Statutes
On IOF webpage is available only old Statutes from 2010
• IOF Media Officer Clive Allen (GBR)
Is this semi/part time job or volunteering? Why not to mention the job responsibility on website under the IOF Office.
+++ Report +++
• Since the 2012 General Assembly five new members – Iran, Azerbaijan, Cameroon, Uganda, and Nepal – have joined the IOF, taking the membership to 78, of which 53 are members and 25 provisional members.
IOF has 21 members with "extended provisional membership" and it would be nice to know what is the status of their activities and what actions IOF plan to do till next congress in order to not loose them. I very much like the presentations of countries in Inside Orienteering and it would be very easy to put each media article link (PDF) also under National federation official data. IOF also collect data about registered orienteers, #clubs, starts,.. and it would be nice to publish these data here as well with tables how these numbers changed over the years within each country and in total by all IOF members.
• A project has been launched to help the provisional members develop towards “full” membership.
Who is in charge and what the project includes? I read somewhere about start package or it was Sportident start package for new members. Anyone know what includes?
• Number of volunteers
There is a list of number of volunteers by countries. Those people are very important for IOF and I would suggest a separate subpage for volunteers. A more structured information as it was done by MC http://lazarus.elte.hu/mc/correspondents/c.htm
To have on one page: articles of them in IOF magazines, time served, erea, IOF awards and some general information about what IOF expect (time,..) when someone volunteering for IOF. To promote volunteering and when IOF seeks new ones for promotion at WOC, etc. It would be nice to have a title: IOF promoters so in each country there will be a few persons who will have time to promote orienteering and execute specific tasks prepared in cooperation with, national federation and IOF.
• IOF Office rent
Profit and Lost statement does not reveal this. How much IOF has spent for rent over the years?
• The Map Commission has evaluated maps from major IOF events in all disciplines. The reports are available on the IOF website.
On webpage there are only reports from 2006-2010. Where is possible to find the reports for 2011-13?
+++ Activity Plan 2014-2016 +++
• 10 provisional members given support
What kind of support they already got or they can expect to get?
• 5 of 24 provisional members shall become full members
If this will happen then IOF will loose at least 16 members with "extended provisional membership" in 2016. The goal should have been to not loose anyone. By statutes: "The IOF Council may determine to extend further the period of provisional membership by one Congress period. A provisional member having such membership terminated by the IOF Council or the General Assembly may not reapply for membership until after one Congress period has lapsed."
