UIM President, Dr. Raffaele Chiulli, and UIM Secretary General Thomas Kurth attended the 114th edition of the APBA Annual Meeting held in Chicago. Welcomed by Howie Nichols, newly elected President of the American Power Boat Association, and Fred Hauenstein, UIM Senior Vice-President, President Chiulli was particularly impressed by the level of quality and exchange that marked the convention.
“This event is a great platform and opportunity to learn, share and interact. I understand this is the first time - and I hope not the last! – that a UIM President crosses the pond to attend the Annual APBA Meeting and to listen in person to the voice of the American Power Boat Sport. “Our National Federations, like the APBA, are uniquely placed to promote and develop our sport, as you have a direct channel to your people.”
The APBA Awards Banquet was another highlight of the presidential visit, allowing the UIM delegation to meet with the APBA Champions and key players, including the 20 inductees of the APBA Hall of Champions.
