To comply with legal restrictions in regards to in-person meetings in Germany, we can only allow ONE delegate per national association to attend the GA. Spouses, partners etc. cannot be hosted.
We allow an additional delegate (members of the Board of national association, a national committee head or equivalent) per national association to attend the GA online. Spouses/partners or those who plan to compete in an international competition are not allowed to attend the GA.
For presidents (or designates) who are planning to attend the GA in situ, accommodation is arranged from July 2nd to 7th (5 nights).
