The Thai Orienteering Association (TOA) was approved as a member of the IOF at the Council Meeting held in Warsaw this past weekend (January 18-19, 2019). This brings the number of members of the IOF to 73. For information about orienteering in Thailand find the new member information on IOF Eventor and visit the TOA Facebook page.
The IOF Council had also received a new member application from the Hellenic Federation of Modern Pentathlon, which has in cooperation with other active orienteering organisations in Greece started orienteering activities. The application lacked some information required by the IOF Statutes so the Council conditionally approved the membership as long as the required documents are provided by March 30, 2019. The membership of Greece would in that case be confirmed at the next IOF Council meeting in Budapest April 12-13, 2019.
