IFRRO elects new Board members at successful IWC in Seoul

IFRRO has just completed a successful World Congress in Seoul, thanks in large part to the hard work and hospitality of the South Korean RRO, KORRA.

During the IFRRO Annual General Meeting on 29 October, IFRRO elected a new Board and re-elected the Presidency.

IFRRO congratulates Rainer Just (VG Wort), IFRRO President, and his two Vice Presidents - Hélène Messier (Copibec) and Jim Alexander (Copyright Agency) – on their re-election and all the Board members, new and old who were elected.
