WADA Announces Appointments to 2011 Standing Committees

WADA is pleased to announce the appointments of its Standing Committees for the 2011 year.

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.

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.

Memberships to the Standing Committees, to commence on January 1, 2011, are listed here.

WADA’s Expert Groups for 2011, whose mandates are to provide specific expert advice on certain areas, are also included.
