For the first time in the history of the ISU, the public is invited to watch the debates and decisions that will shape the future of Ice Skating disciplines, through a live broadcast on ISU YouTube Channel of the 57th ISU Ordinary Congress, taking place from June 4-8, 2018, in Seville, Spain.
The ISU Ordinary Congress is the most important event of the year in the Ice Skating sphere. It is an exclusive gathering, where ISU Office Holders and ISU Member Federations delegations decide the future of Figure Skating and Speed Skating Branches. This year, more than 400 proposals regarding the rules, regulations and development of the sports will be voted on and for the very first time, the doors are open to the public through a Live Stream.
There will be a Congress session, Figure Skating and Speed Skating Sessions as well as the Elections for ISU President, Council Members, Technical Committees and Disciplinary Commission, that will conclude the Congress on Friday June 8.
People worldwide will be able to witness the decision process as some proposals pass and others are refused. During the assemblies, proposals need a two-third majority of ISU Members vote in favor to be accepted. ISU Members who represent Figure Skating and Speed Skating have two votes on each proposal dealt with in the plenary session, whereas ISU Members who are only involved in either Figure Skating or Speed Skating alone are entitled to one vote. The Elections will follow the procedure as per Article 29 of the ISU Constitution and General Regulations.
