To all the members of the FCI
Dear Fanciers, dear Sport Friends!
It is a great honor for me, that on the congress, held in 2019
in Poznan, you have given me trust, and allowing me to
continue my work as the President of FCI for the next 4 years. It
is only possible to move forward, if we leave one of our feet
still, while we move with the other.
Many countries take an active role in the life of FCI, for
decades and in the present, they take leading positions in the
federation and in the professional committees. I am very glad,
that new countries have applied to become members, and with
all of my heart,I support their applications. We have started
and we will continue the organization of regional and
professional conferences. In 2018, we have organized 4 of
these meetings. In the future, we plan to organize them in the
following topics: professional- animal health, sport-Grand
Prix, local and regional cooperation, the involvement of youth,
the roles and possibilities of women in pigeon sports. In all
areas, I find the role of communication very important, as
well as the implementation of great practices. I believe, that
the success of pigeon sport depends on our cooperation.
have to encourage FCI members to participate on World
Championship-Grand Prix-Olympiads, for international
evaluations, and for the organization of regional exhibition
in order to make our sport more popular. In Poznan, we have
accepted a new race: the world’s best pigeon. With this race,
there will be
no more physical boundaries: the result of a pigeon from
Belgium can be compared with the ones from all other countries.
The greatest result of the last two years is the regulation of
rings and the agreements signed
with ring manufacturers. In the next years, it is an important
task for the future to clarify the rules regarding
the ordering and use of rings, and to validate the
international standards in the life of all member federations.
I hope, that we all would like to work on the success of
pigeon sport in local, national and international levels. From
all FCI members, we are waiting for your proposals, that would
development of pigeon sport in FCI and in the member
federations as well. I hope, that the newly elected leadership,
and the presidents of member federations are enthusiastic and
willing to cooperate.
As the President of FCI, I am willing to take all actions to
make pigeon sport even more popular and acknowledged in the
President of FCI
