CPISRA members vote to officially merge with IWAS at Extraordinary General Assembly

On 28th November 2022, the CPISRA membership made the decision to dissolve CPISRA and merge with the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS) at our Extraordinary General Assembly (EGA). On the same day, IWAS members voted to accept merger plans with CPISRA at their General Assembly. Both meetings took place during the IWAS World Games in Portugal.

Craig Carscadden, CEO and President of CPISRA, said on the merger with IWAS: “This historical decision will benefit the worldwide physical disability community and one that Charmaine Hooper IWAS CEO and myself have talked about for more than a decade. Getting to the point where we could bring proposals to the EGA was two years of hard work, but it will be well worth it in the long term”.

CPISRA are very excited to start working with IWAS under the new organisation launching in early 2023. More information will follow in the coming months.
