New ICSD Legal Commisison

Dear ICSD Members and Athletes,

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and that you were able to celebrate the new year with family and friends.

ICSD is looking forward to a big year and getting on with our work.

The ICSD board has approved the establishment of the ICSD Legal Commission. Its main work will be to provide legal review of the current constitution and bylaws as well the proposed new constitution and bylaws. It is important work that needs to be done.

We are pleased to advise the appointment to the Chair of the ICSD Legal Commission. The Chair will be Mr Gustavo Perazzolo, whom many of you will know from his work as President of the PANAMDES organisation. We also have from the Asia Pacific region, Ms Kathryn Armfield, a qualified and practising lawyer. She is the current President of Deaf Sports Australia. From the European region, we have Mr Phillip Gerrard, whom you will know from his role as member of the EDSO Legal Commission. He is currently the Secretary General for EDSO. ICSD is fortunate to have persons of such high calibre join the commission.

ICSD is keen to recruit two more members, one from the PANAMDES region and another from the African region. We would welcome nominations, please direct these to either myself or the ICSD CEO, Mr Dmitry Rebrov so that we can fill these seats on the commission.

Thank you!

Rebecca Adam
ICSD President
