Dear athletes, coaches, officials and referees of Australia;
It is with great pleasure to inform you, the IPF Executive Committee has accepted the Australian Powerlifting Union (APU) as a provisional member of the International Powerlifting Federation.
A powerlifting federation cannot be created in one day or for that matter in one week. It requires time and needs to be created, carefully, in accordance to our rules and in accordance to the laws of the Australia.
This was the reason for the delay and we appreciate, very much, both your patience and your support.
We kindly welcome all current powerlifters that are willing to join the Australian Powerlifting Union. Enclosed below is the contact information for the APU. The APU is now open for business and accepting member applications. Of course, it will be your choice as to whether or not you wish to join the new federation. It is not compulsory to become a member; however, if you’re wanting to lift at an IPF sanctioned International or World Championships or set IPF World Records, you will be required to join the APU.
9 Emerald Street
Hamilton North, Australia 2292
To close, we offer to all of the members and APU Executive our heartfelt congratulations. Well done and much success!
The Executive Committee
International Powerlifting Federation
