Posted On 20th December 2017

20th December 2017: The EHF Executive Board approved the following EHF Committees for 2017 – 2019. The President, Marijke Fleuren thanked the committee members who had served on the 2015-2017 Committees for their time and energy and welcomed the announcement of the new Committees.

She said “The EHF is very fortunate to have very dedicated, knowledgeable volunteers who work alongside our staff to deliver the EHF’s strategies on appointments, development, education, competition, finance, facilities and marketing and communications. I take this opportunity to thank those who have served the EHF and I also welcome the new members. It is vital that we have a mix of experience and fresh, new ideas. I am also very pleased with the re-structure of the Communications committee which will become Marketing and Communications as we strive to bring European hockey to the next level of professionalism. We have added a new committee, Facilities, reflecting our strive towards ensuring that all hockey players in Europe have access to the best possible facilities. Finally I thank, most sincerely, our Member Associations who support the EHF Committee members to do their work all over Europe.”
