The Biathlon Integrity Unit board met with the IBU EB to discuss the strategic direction and provide an update on its activities.
Reports were delivered on the Target 26 strategic plan for 2022-2026 following regional meetings with national federation leaders conducted mostly in person from November 2022 through May 2023. There was also an annual review of IBU Governance and Policies, Guidelines and Rules.

Among many decisions taken, the IBU EB approved the continuation of extraordinary support for NF Ukraine at the same level as the previous year. Decisions were also taken to advertise for a full-time Digital Marketing Manager and search for a person to assist with sport technical development of para-biathlon.
