IFF Central Board meeting 14th of November 2007
Place: Decision per capsulam over e-mail
§ 1. Forming of the IFF Athletes Commission
According to the guidelines given by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), where it has been stated that the influence of the athletes has to be secured, the ExCo now proposes that the CB would approve the forming of an Athletes Commission for the IFF.
The ExCo proposes to form an Athletes Commission (ASC) consisting of 4 female and 4 male athletes representatives. The commission will be lead by a member of the CB. Half of the athletes (2 female and 2 male) are elected by their peers, during the EuroFloorball Cup Final round in January 2008 and the other are appointed by the CB directly, during the CB meeting in January. In the future the election of the Athletes will be conducted during the Adult‘s World Floorball Championships, starting with the female members in the WFC in 2009. The objective of the athletes commission is to comment and take part in the preparation of the Game Rule changes, looking over the Competition Regulations and participate in the development of IFF Competitions.
The CB decided: to approve the proposal of forming an Athletes Commission for the IFF based on the proposal. The office was given the task to prepare the election of the members during the EFC in Finland.
