The below communication from WDSF President Lukas Hinder and the attached 'White Paper' - COMBATING COMPETITION MANIPULATION - is of the utmost importance to all in the DanceSport community - competitors, officials and volunteers. It is commended for review and study by all members of DSA.

Steve Edwards, CEO, DanceSport Australia
To the Member Bodies of the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF)
Dear Presidents, Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the WDSF Presidential Task Force (TF) to Combat Competition Manipulation (CCM) I am providing you with the WHITE PAPER to CCM.
This White Paper is the first official publication that is released by the members of the Presidential Task Force to Combat Competition Manipulation in DanceSport. It follows up on the problem of competition manipulation that I have outlined in a letter to the international community that was circulated in April 2016.
This White Paper is published on our Website. For further information, I refer you to: http://www.worlddancesport.org/News/WDSF/The_White_Paper-2216
Otherwise I refer you to the recent publications re TF CCM:
The second instalment of "Skype The Prez," the informal exchange on topical issues between WDSF President Lukas Hinder and the chair of the Athletes' Commission, Ashli Williamson. Two issues were dealt with: a first question about the work of the Competition Manipulation Task Force, the other about a case of alleged competition manipulation in Stuttgart, GER.
Please forward this information to all of your Members in your country.
Thank you very much for your support.
Lukas Hinder WDSF President
