Submissions for the 2008 ISAF Annual Conference must be received at the ISAF Secretariat using the Submission template form by 12:00 UTC on 1 August 2008.
Being held in Madrid, Spain from 6-16 November, the Annual Conference brings together the ISAF Council and Committees and representatives from ISAF Member National Authorities (MNAs), ISAF Class Associations, event organizers, sailors and other key representatives across the sport. One of the main objectives of the Conference is the consideration and judgement of Submissions - essentially proposals to change or introduce a policy - which may be made on any issue affecting the sport.
Submissions are assigned to one or more relevant Committee to consider and then pass on their recommendation to the ISAF Council, who make the final decision as to whether a Submission will be approved, deferred or rejected.
How To Make A Submission
All MNAs, International Class Associations, the Executive Committee, Committee Chairmen and the ISAF President are entitled to make Submissions and all will be considered and ultimately voted upon at the Conference providing they have been correctly drafted and submitted in accordance with the ISAF Regulations. If you've got an issue or a proposal you want to see discussed in Madrid, contact your MNA or class association to make your voice heard - all MNA and class contact details can be found at www.sailing.org/mna
Submissions should be submitted to the ISAF Secretariat using the Submission template form (available below) following the procedure set out in ISAF Regulations 1 - www.sailing.org/regulations

Submissions have to be received by ISAF by 12:00 UTC on 1 August each year, in order to give enough time for the papers to be circulated to all the relevant bodies (ISAF MNAs, ISAF Classes) and to the specific Committees, to research and consider before the Annual Conference. Please note, the deadline for Submissions for Equipment for the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition was 15 March 2008 (in accordance with ISAF Regulation 16.1.2).
The submissions received will be included on the Agendas of the appropriate ISAF Committees and discussed during the meetings in November. All Submission are also published online on the ISAF website http://www.sailing.org/
in advance of the Conference.
