The goals

Under FIVA Internal Rule 4 the Events Commission (EC) has delegated responsibility to undertake an annual programme of work and oversee and monitor events under its jurisdiction.  The EC’s remit covers all matters concerning the organisation, direction and management of such events within the FIVA specified sector of interest. Internal Rule 4.5 authorises the FIVA Events Commission to issue Codes as necessary to govern FIVA events.

Aims and tasks

The Events Commission will meet at least four times per year to monitor progress of its work schedule and to investigate further proposals to launch better services to members and organisers.  The Events Commission will also liaise with other FIVA Commissions to expand the influence of ideas from other countries and cultures within FIVA.
