The FEI President Ingmar De Vos was re-appointed on three commissions of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). These are the Coordination Commission for the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad Los Angeles 2028; Legal Affairs; and the Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commission. The IOC announced the composition of its commissions for 2023 earlier this week.
President De Vos, who was elected an IOC Member in September 2017, has served on the Coordination Commission for the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad Los Angeles 2028 and Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commission since 2019 and on Legal Affairs since 2018. He was also a member of the Digital and Technology Commission from 2018 to 2019.
The IOC Commissions play a vital role in the organisation's work, focusing on specific subject areas and making recommendations to the IOC President, the Executive Board and the IOC Session. The composition of each commission includes IOC Members and a range of external experts. Detailed description of the work of each IOC Commission is available on the IOC website here.
“The IOC and FEI have enjoyed a longstanding relationship of close cooperation and excellent mutual understanding,” the FEI President said. “I would like to thank the IOC and President Thomas Bach for their vote of confidence. I look forward to continuing contributing in a positive and constructive way to the work of the three Commissions.”
