1. AGM 2021 and Working Meeting 2021 as video conference
After consulting with the member countries (NMA's) as mentioned in the IISHF Communication Letter 2020-21 the IISHF Presidium has decided that the AGM 2021 (and the Working Meeting 2021) that was planned to take place in Tel Aviv (Israel) on 27-28.02.2021 will take place as a video conference on the same two days.

The decision has been necessary due to the current development of the COVID-19 virus where it?s very uncertain if we can travel anywhere in the end of February 2021 and host a normal physical AGM meeting.

Thank you very much for the positive feedback given by Austria, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and Ukraine supporting the idea of hosting a video conference which will be the first time for IISHF.
