The Nomination Committee met for the first time at the FEI Headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, November 1-2, 2007.
During their one-and-a-half-day meeting, the committee mainly discussed and reviewed the following: conflict of interest and confidentiality agreement, role of the committee, procedures and timeline.
The committee will forward a report to the Bureau for their upcoming Bureau meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The National Federations will be updated as soon as possible thereafter.
The role of the Nominations Committee, as specified in the FEI Internal Regulations, is to seek and receive nominations from National Federations for all positions on the Bureau, Committees and Tribunal, and to make recommendations to the Bureau and General Assembly based on objective eligibility criteria.
