The 2015 European Athletics Congress takes place on Saturday 11 April in Bled, Slovenia, with elections to determine the new President, Vice Presidents and Council.
The 24th European Athletics Congress is the general assembly of the Member Federations and the supreme authority of the European Athletic Association.

In addition to the usual formalities of the Congress, voting will take place to elect the 17 Council Members as follows: 1 President, 3 Vice Presidents, 13 Council Members.
Under the newly elected President’s leadership, these 17 people will be the driving force of European Athletics for 2015 up to 2019.
