The Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) published the results of the fourth governance review of its member federations.
The ITTF significantly improved its performance since the last assessment, with strong scores among the five sections – from Transparency, Integrity and Democracy to Development and Control Mechanisms.
ITTF President Petra Sörling, who made Good Governance one of the key pillars of her mandate, commented: “I am very pleased the ITTF increased its score once again. I would like to thank the ASOIF for conducting this review: we share the objective of promoting a culture of good governance and driving continuous progress.”
Several initiatives of the ITTF are highlighted in the list of good practice examples compiled by the ITTF from the study.
ASOIF President and GTF Chair Francesco Ricci Bitti said: “Considering the huge disruption to international sport resulting from the pandemic, it is reassuring to see the positive progress IFs continued to make with their governance in the last two years. Now, with the ongoing war in Ukraine, IFs need to continue navigating amid considerable uncertainty and complexity, and a high level of public scrutiny. Only well-governed organisations are likely to be able to meet the challenge. I hope that this assessment assists and inspires IFs in that regard.”
