If the WFNBTA and WBTF are partnering to form the IBTF, what will happen to each of them?

Both organizations will continue to exist and operate independently for a period of time until it is deemed necessary to merge all systems. Our hope is that the WBTF-WFNBTA partnership will encourage national WBTF and WFNBTA federations to also partner together within their respective countries and, ultimately, work towards unification.
