WADA Announces Appointments to 2009 Standing Committees

WADA is pleased to announce the appointments of its Standing Committees for the year 2009. The Standing Committees play a key advisory role in policy and priority development for the international agency responsible for monitoring and coordinating the global fight against doping in sport.

The Committee appointments were approved by WADA’s Foundation Board at its November 23 meeting. Nominations for committee membership are sought each year from WADA’s stakeholders, including governments and sports authorities. A rotation system ensures that one-third of members are replaced every year.

The Committees report to the Executive Committee, WADA’s supreme decision-making body.

WADA’s Expert Groups, whose mandates are to provide specific expert advice on certain areas, are also included.
