Facebook Group for IFR Delegates (only).

For an international Federation that aims at a close cooperation with and between its members, a good and quick communication is of course essential.   Using modern social media, such as Facebook, may offer a perfect platform for such communication.

At the suggestion of the Swedish Delegate, Mrs. Anna Warburg Rexlinger, the IFR Board has decided to create a Facebook Group for just this purpose.    I thank Mrs. Rexlinger for both the suggestion and for then actually creating the Group-page.

This Facebook Group is a closed group and allows only the Delegates of the IFR Member Clubs as its members.   All Delegates were invited to become a member of the Group.

Follow up on the misbehavior of some individuals at the IFR-show

We refer to the report of the IFR-President that was published before on the IFR World Show 2022 Italy.   He not only reported about the excellent organization and atmosphere, but also about (an) incident(s) during which some participants showed very unsportsmanlike, and therefore unacceptable, behavior.   

The IFR Board has received several formal complaints.  We have contacted the Italian Kennel Club ENCI, being the competent disciplinary authority, and also the FCI about these incidents and complaints and have asked for a thorough and serious investigation and to take the disciplinary actions deemed appropriate.
