Feedback in regards to a combined U16 & U19 European Championships, Meeting at the U19 European Championships, Men European Cup 2018, Men European Championships 2018, Other Title Event applications for 2018, Ukraine member of the IISHF Technical Committe
1. Feedback in regards to a combined U16 & U19 European Championships
As mentioned in the IISHF Communication Letter 2017-20 as of 29 June 2017 the Austrian Federation approached the IISHF Presidium and proposed the implementation of U16 European Championships in a combined event with the U19 European Championship. While such a measure strongly affects the U19 Championships, it also opens up opportunities for further developing our sport and makes it easier for smaller NMA's to participate in European Championships. While a decision regarding this matter can only be made by the AGM, the IISHF Presidium wants to evaluate the concept. Therefore, we asked all NMA's for their feedback regarding two aspects until the 1st of August 2017. Attached please find the feedback received so far from the NMA's.

2. Meeting at the U19 European Championships
The IISHF Presidium has decided to invite all NMA's participating at the upcoming U19 European Championships in Iserlohn (Germany) to take part in a meeting about the plans for a combined U16/U19 European Championships. The meeting is scheduled to take place on Saturday 21st October, 2017 at 8 PM after the last game of the group play. The place for the meeting will be announced at the Managers Meeting Friday evening. Other NMA's willing to take part in the meeting are also welcome.

3. Men European Cup 2018
SHC Rossemaison, Switzerland has applied for the hosting of the Men European Cup 2018 to take place on 28th June to 1st July in Rossemaison, Switzerland. The application fully complies with the IISHF Regulations and thus can be agreed/sanctioned by the IISHF Presidium. But before we must of course give other NMAs the possibility also to apply for hosting this event. For this reason the IISHF Presidium has set a deadline of 30th September, 2017 for other official and complete applications for the Men European Cup 2018.

4. Men European Championships 2018
SHC Rossemaison, Switzerland has also applied for the hosting of the Men European Championships 2018 to take place on 22-25 November in Rossemaison (Switzerland). This application also fully complies with the IISHF Regulations and thus can be agreed/sanctioned by the IISHF Presidium. But before we must of course give other NMAs the possibility also to apply for hosting this event. For this reason the IISHF Presidium has set a deadline of 30 September 2017 for other official and complete applications for the Men European Championships 2018.

5. Other Title Event Applications for 2018
The IISHF Presidium has set a deadline of 30 September 2017 for other official and complete applications for all other remaining Title Event Applications for 2018 covering the U13, U16, U19, Women, Men Cup Winners Cup, Veterans and the U19 European Championships which might be the first combined U16/U19 European Championships. The IISHF Presidium will then publish lately until 15 October 2017 the hosting of all IISHF Title Events for 2018 for which the IISHF Presidium has received official complete applications.

Thus we hereby officially announce that according to point 12.1 IISHF Constitution the IISHF Presidium has imposed an official deadline for all IISHF National Member Associations to inform until Wednesday 13.09.2017 all their clubs:
- about all open Title Events 2018 (as above)
- to inform their clubs about the deadline 30.09.2017 for applications of the open Title Events 2018
- to inform their clubs that without application until 30.09.2017 the relevant Title Events 2017 might not take place.
The IISHF National Member Associations are also requested (as official deadline according to point 12.1 IISHF Constitution) to provide the IISHF Presidium until Thursday 14.09.2017 a copy of their website publication (or other way of information sent to the clubs).

6. Ukraine member of the IISHF Technical Committee
It's a great pleasure to welcome Oleksandr Govorum to the IISHF Technical Committee
representing the Ukrainian Federation of Roller Hockey. The Ukrainian Federation of Roller Hockey (UFRH) has stated the following: " It is our distinct goal at the UFRH to build capacities in Ukraine with regard to arbitration. That initially means to learn how the current IISHF rules are applied and interpreted. In a second step we want Oleksandr to develop training programmes to be able to license skater hockey arbiters in Ukraine. A cooperation with IISHF and its NMA is, hence, very important to us".

The wording in § 16.3 Constitution for appointing members of the IISHF Technical Committte is as follows: ?Each National Member Association shall appoint one Technical Delegate to the Technical Committee and report this delegate to the IISHF Presidium. As long as a National Member Association has not reported another delegate, the last notified delegate is valid?.

At the next AGM in February 2018 the IISHF Presidium will make a proposal for a clarification of the §16.3 for any separation needed between being a Temporary or Permanent member of IISHF in regards to the membership of the IISHF Technical Committee.

7. Changes of IISHF Constitution and IISHF Regulations
At the last Working Meeting in February 2017 at the AGM in Kiev, Ukraine the NMA's expressed that they were very glad that compared to previous general meetings much more time had been provided to discuss and talk about other matters than Constitution, Regulations and Rules Book. Thus it was proposed if changes for constitution and regulations should also in the future first be discussed in working groups and not in detail at a Working Meeting or Annual General Meeting anymore. A proposal for change of the constitution could in the future be for example with a least 3 months notice. The time at such one annual weekend should be used more for the sport itself instead of modification of documents.

The IISHF Presidium has taken up this relevant point and thus we ask all NGBs to provide us with their topics, proposals or ideas for modifications of IISHF Constitution and/or IISHF Regulations lately until 15 October 2017. The IISHF Presidium will then put together all the points and try to work out a draft of new documents and send you this still in November 2017 for a check.

On behalf of the IISHF Presidium
Erik Sommer (President)
