Constitution and Policy Documents

Following the election of the new Board in 2010 after the Vancouver Olympics it was agreed to review the Governance of the World Curling Federation (WCF) and propose a new updated constitution to the membership.

Following two years of consultation the new Constitution was approved at the 2013 WCF Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark. The main changes saw the removal of guaranteed places on the Board for Canada, Scotland and the USA, the introductions of zonal vice-presidents to ensure a geographic spread of Board members, new terms of office for Board members and a new system that ensured continuity of Board members by offsetting the elections for various positions.

The new constitution also strengthened the use of Commissions and introduced a new voting system recognising the different size and scale of the Member Associations of the WCF.

In addition to the constitution there are a number of Policies adopted by the Board to ensure the open and ethical operation of the WCF.
