Important and successful lobbying was done for FAI to improve its financial organization. Commissions will have a much better access to their accounts, now separate, hence will know at anytime where they stand. CIVL will test/spearhead the new organisation.

Right after the Plenary, the new CIVL Bureau met and defined a global organization and strategy for the coming months.
Three weeks were necessary to write the Plenary minutes plus annexes and published them on this website.
The Committees, Working Group and Officers positions were finalized and all started working on their own agenda. This work is done mainly on Basecamp, a project management tool. We switched from Basecamp Classic to a new and quite different version of the software.
The Local Regulations for the 7th World Paragliding Accuracy 2013 Championships were finalized and published.
The athletes for the Paragliding Accuracy event of the World Games 2013 were selected.
Last but not least, a memorandum of understanding was signed by CIVL and FAI Air Sports Marketing & Events SA (FAME) to promote aerobatic events.
