The European Hockey Federation (EHF) recently held its third Executive Board meeting of the year. The assembly took place at the EHF headquarters in Brussels, Belgium on Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October 2011.
It was the first meeting since the election of the new Board, and also the first to be overseen by newly elected EHF President Marijke Fleuren.
Various outstanding issues were looked at by the Board, including the appointment of a female Vice-President to fill the vacancy left by Marijke Fleuren. In accordance with the EHF statutes, the Board unanimously agreed to appoint Germany’s Carola Meyer to the role for the period leading up to the General Assembly in Belgium 2013.
The Board held discussions about the current structure and agreed to make some minor adjustments. For the next two years the following EHF Committees will be in existence: Appointments; Competitions – Outdoor; Competitions – Indoor; Development Projects; Education; Communications, and Finance. It was proposed that the Member Associations nominate people for the various committees, with the chairs and members of each committee being appointed at the final Board meeting later this year.
The President also took the opportunity of her first meeting to hold a “Strategy Session”, the aim of which was to define the starting point for the future Board to determine the unifying factors of the association.
The final Executive Board meeting of the year will take place at EHF Headquarters in December.
