Koi Organisation International (“K.O.I.”) was formed in 2009 by a group of dedicated Koi hobbyists. Their goal was to create an Internet-based teaching and learning organization that would serve the world-wide Koi hobby by providing solid, reliable and usable information and assistance concerning many aspects of the hobby with an emphasis on Koi health and husbandry issues. K.O.I. is incorporated and has obtained nonprofit status.
K.O.I. has a board of directors and an operations group. The Directors are charged with the longer-term vision for, and guidance of, the organization while the operations group will implement the plans and conduct the day-to-day business of the organization.
From time to time, K.O.I. may seek to include professionals into its efforts. Any such inclusions will be guided and restricted by the need to preserve and protect the mission, goals and needs of the organization.
The original core group took nearly a year preparing to “go public.” The group fully intends to continue to expand and improve their efforts and offerings. These improvements will be guided by the Board of Directors that will actively solicit, collect and attempt to implement suggestions from the community they seek to serve.
The mission of Koi Organisation International is to promote and improve the International enjoyment of the Koi hobby by providing hobbyists with education and mentoring regarding good Koi husbandry, the recognition and management of Koi and pond systems
