Call for Oceanic candidates for the Athletes Commission 02/12/2019

René Ewals, Athletes' Commission Secretary

The WDSF Athletes Commission is looking for candidates to be elected as the representative for the Oceanic region.

The WDSF Athletes Commission (AC) is a permanent commission of the WDSF Presidium that consists of athletes who are elected solely by other WDSF athletes. The AC represents the interest of the athletes, advises the Presidium on matters that are relevant to the athletes, and works to improving the communication between the Presidium and the athletes.

The term of our current Oceanic representative, Mr. Antonio Micheli, has ended as he has retired as an active athlete. As such, all active athletes having their residence in the Oceanic region may now volunteer or be nominated as candidates. One of the candidates approved by the Commission as qualified under the WDSF Athletes Commission Operating Policy will be elected to serve a 4-year term as a member of the Athletes Commission.

Any active athlete, who has to be at least 18 years of age, and must have his/her residence in the Oceanic region may submit his or her candidacy together with a resume and reasons or statement for candidacy, to the following e-mail address by 17 December 2019, 17:00 CET: .

Following your submission to the AC, each candidate will need to be approved and after approval will be added to the list as an eligible candidate.

We will be conducting an electronic electionfrom 28 January 2020 up to and including 4 February 2020. Further instructions on the electronic voting will be issued once the candidates are known.

Following the elections, the candidate voted in will become a part of the Athletes Commission.

We are looking forward to receive your nomination!

Many thanks.

On behalf of The Athletes Commission
René Ewals, Secretary
