AMSTERDAM, Netherland – Reducing the number of vice-presidents from four to two and abolishing the position of treasurer, are among proposals put forward following a two-day International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Governance Structure Reform Forum in Amsterdam.
The number of vice-presidents would be halved, with one of each gender appointed by the Council. while the finance function previously undertaken by the treasurer would be managed by “professional staff and a finance subcommittee of the Executive Board”.
The Executive Board would have a new role as “guardian of the IAAF” and be a “governance board with wider powers”.
The President, while continuing to act as the “face of the sport”, will have have reduced personal powers and only act under “delegated authority from Congress, Council and the Executive Board”.
