Montreal, 30 March 2020 – Today, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) publishes the membership of WADA’s five Standing Committees for 2020, which was recently confirmed by the Agency’s Executive Committee (ExCo) via circulatory voting.

WADA President Witold Bańka said: “WADA is very grateful to the dozens of very able volunteers who provide their time and expertise to the Agency’s Standing Committees. The Committees play a key advisory role in policy and priority development for the Agency. The members’ commitment in applying their competencies is crucial to advancing the Agency’s mission as the leader of Clean Sport.”
The Standing Committee Chairs were appointed on 23 January 2020; and, following these appointments, the Committee memberships were then proposed to the ExCo for their approval, with new members taking office on or before 1 March.
