In the ExCO meeting, Each Committee Board Member gave those in attendance an updated report on their achievements during the unprecedented 2020 year, and also their goals for this coming 2021. Several accomplishments were shared including the creation of online events, coaching education courses and forums as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. During these last few months, Badminton Asia’s online engagement on social media has increased, elevating BA’s profile globally yet maintaining BA’s Asian identity through the variety of content shared.
In addition, the Committee Members also discussed their future plans and agendas with the group. This consisted of proposing a better and more efficient communication structure of the organization with the Member Associations, as to better support them maximally through a clearer communication channel.
Furthermore a new 11-point scoring system was proposed, consisting of a best of five (3 games to win) match. This proposal has been approved by the ExCO.
