Welcome to 2017 Elections & Appointments 

 
Please find hereunder the list of all positions open for election and appointment in 2018.
 
Application files should be sent to the Nominations Committee Administrator by email (julie.schlaefli@fei.org). The deadline for receipt by the FEI is:
 
1 May 2018 (23:59 CEST)
 
The proportion of positions occupied by women and the geographical representation in FEI Committees have increased since the FEI Bureau encouraged female candidacies and candidacies from nations not yet represented to be put forward in 2015. While this increase is promising, the FEI Bureau still strongly encourages the National Federations to nominate female candidates and representatives of non-represented nations in order to ensure gender equity and diversity among the members of the FEI Committees. The FEI views with immense pride the fact that equestrian sport is one of very few where men and women compete as equals at all levels of international, as well as national, competition.
 
Please carefully read the Election procedure document available below.
