The ultimate authority in the World Curling Federation is held by the Member Associations through General Meetings and the approval of the Constitution.
The Member Associations elect the President and Board to lead the organisation, which they do through the development of a Strategic Forward Plan and the approval of appropriate Policy documents.
The Board appoint a full time Secretary General to lead the staff and operations of the Federation and deliver the Forward Plan.
The work of the Federation is supported by a number of Commissions who provide advice and support to the Board and staff and if requested can report direct to the Member Associations at General Meetings.
Commissions are appointed by the Board with the exception of the Athlete Commission who are directly elected by the athletes.
The World Curling Federation’s The Way Forward 2020 outlines a global vision for curling and underpins the work carried out by the organisation.
