Dear INWA Member and National Trainers,
This year the INWA Convention 2019 will be held in Russia. Russian Nordic Walking Association (RNWA) is pleased to host this convention.
Convention place is near Moscow, in Sergiev Posad, which is located by the about 70 km north east from Moscow.
Sergiev Posab grew in the 15th century around one of the greatest of Russian monasteries, the Trinity Lavra, established by St. Sergius of Radonezh, still (as of 2015) one of the largest monasteries in RussiaTown. Status was granted to Sergiyev Posad in 1742. The town’s name, alluding to St. Sergius, has strong religious connotations. Soviet authorities changed it first to just Sergiyev in 1919, and then to Zagorsk in 1930, in memory of the revolutionary Vladimir Mikhailovich Zagorsky. The original name was restored in 1991.
INWA convention is open for all the INWA member organisations and National Trainers. We will be able to accept max. 100 participants and it is important that you secure your participation earliest possible.
The convention will be held from 27th until 28th
The program will be this year very attractive with a new vision and CPD according to the latest developments in International Nordic Walking and our brand new manual with a lot of new and updated material. The second day, our member RNWA will prepare an attractive program.
Before the convention we will have as always the AGM, this yearon the 26th September. If you have any special topics you want to discuss in the AGM, please inform INWA office of this. INWA Vice President Hans Wrang will still send an official invitation to the Annual General Meeting.
