WADA’s Standing Committees for 2012 were confirmed at the WADA Foundation Board meeting in Montreal on Nov. 20, 2011.
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.
