Michel Landry, World Physiotherapy president, said: “It was great to have the opportunity to meet face to face and get to know each other. I look forward to working with my fellow board members in continuing to build the global physiotherapy community.”

The matters discussed during the meeting, 11-12 August 2023, included:

  • general meeting
  • review of board subcommittee membership and terms of reference
  • review of internal policies.

The meeting also presented an opportunity for the board and senior staff to meet.

The board usually holds two or three in-person and six online meetings every year. The last board meeting in London took place in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to family commitments, Yasushi Uchiyama was unable to join the meeting in London.
