The 52nd International Ski Congress will be held in Royal Cliff (THA) from 17th to 23rd May 2020.
Online registration for participants and delegates closes on 31st January 2020. Even if National Ski Associations have not finalised the details of their delegations yet, it is strongly recommended that registration is made as soon as possible. Room allocations are made on a first come first served basis and it is possible to make one change to the name and/or arrival and departure dates at a later date.
1. Appointment of FIS Committee Members
National Ski Association proposals for qualified members must include both genders, if there is more than one member proposed, with the following targets:
- period 2020 - 2022: maximum 70% one gender
- period 2022 - 2024: maximum 60% one gender
In cases where the respective Committee has a Vice-Chair position, the Council will assign the Chair and Vice-Chair representing both genders where possible.
The above gender balance requirements relate to the entire National Ski Association FIS Committee membership delegation. Therefore if a National Ski Association proposes ten members in different committees, it can include a maximum of seven of one gender. For clarification, the calculation refers to "committee positions". Therefore, when one person is a member in three committees, he/she is counted three times.
Submitting proposals for FIS Committee Membership
Nominations for FIS Committees for the upcoming Congress 2020 – 2022 period will be made by each National Association’s designated Committee Member Manager within the FIS Member Section, in the same way as for the previous period.
