Marc van Leuven today resigned from the Presidency of the Royal Belgian Korfball Association KBKB after serving in this position for 11 years. He will continue to serve on the Executive Committee of the KBKB until 2015. In 2015, the KBKB will host the IKF World Korfball Championship. Frans Walvis, IKF Senior Vice-President, awarded Van Leuven the IKF Pin of Merit, to appreciate the extensive support that Van Leuven – in his position as KBKB President – has given to many programs for korfball development. Over the past decade, the KBKB has provided extensive support to multiple programs, including the IKF “referee to a higher level” program.
At the General Meeting of the KBKB, it was announced that Mrs Danielle Ruts will take over the Presidency. It is the first time in its 92-year history that the KBKB will be lead by a female President. Ruts currently also serves on the Council of the IKF, a position she is planning to retain.
