Day 2 of the FGG Annual General Assembly

Today is the second day of the FGG's Annual General Assembly in Toronto.

At yesterday's opening session, Outsport Toronto and Elaios were ratified as new members, to the applause of the assembly. The morning also saw the first of several sessions devoted to the project for a single event in 2018, in the presence of Wessel Van Kampen, co-president of GLISA, who made the trip from the Netherlands to meet with the more than 60 FGG delegates, board members, and volunteers gathered in Toronto.

The afternoon saw the first committee meetings, those of external affairs and culture, and a large gathering for sports committee, at which delegates met Rob Smitherman, the newly hired sports director for Gay Game 9. Rob is a familiar face to FGG people, as a sports manager for some particularly challenging sports at Gay Games VII in Chicago, and assistant sports manager in Cologne for Gay Games VIII.

Today's schedule includes more committee meetings (technology and development), more 1QE discussions, and reports from our last host in Cologne and our next host in Cleveland. At the end of the day, the public reception will take place at Woody's bar, during which the FGG will present its 2011 Awards to people such as Angela James and Brian Burke.
