National Athlete’s Commission
The National Athletes’ Commission, established according to art. 31, paragraph §5 of the CONI Statute (pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 242 of 23 July 1999) and of art. 32, paragraph §1.3 of the IOC Olympic Charter, acts as a permanent advisory body for CONI.
Its function is to contribute to proliferate the Olympic ideal and to offer proposals, suggestions and opinions to the Olympic Committee’s bodies for the adoption of strategies and programmes with particular reference to issues concerning athletes.
The Commission is formed by one member of each Federal Commission and by three members of representatives of the Associated Disciplines.
The Management Committee and the Regional Trustees are bodies of the Commission. The Assembly of Federal Councillors elects its representatives at the CONI National Council (art. 6 and 34 of the CONI Statute). The Management Committee is made up of the representatives of the CONI National Council and two athletes elected to the CONI National Board. Automatic Members are the Italians elected to the IOC International Athletes’ Commission and the EOC European Athletes' Commission, one representative of Sports for People with Disabilities and one representative of the Associated Disciplines. The Management Committee elects the President and Vice President internally.
