The announcement that the next IBCPC Festival will be held in Italy during the summer of 2018 has generated much excitement worldwide - the Steering Committee anticipates that it will easily match the 2014 Sarasota Festival in terms of the number of paddlers and their supporters attending. Already there has been a flurry of emails seeking more details. The latest IBCPC
Newsletter at http://www.ibcpc.com/documents/August2015newsletter.pdf has the up-to-date information on the 2018 Festival and we will let you know as more details are decided.

Australian National Representatives
To better communicate with its expanding membership - a total of 154 member teams in 14 countries at last count, with IBCPC in conversation with other established teams to join as well as assisting breast cancer survivor teams to set up in areas where there is a need - IBCPC is helped by a network of National Representatives in each country.
