ITU is pleased to announce the list of candidates for various elected positions within ITU, which will be voted on in Madrid on December 11 during ITU’s annual Congress.

ITU elections are held every four years in the year of the Summer Olympics. With the exception of the Athlete’s Committee, which was recently voted on by athletes, all seats and committees are up for re-election including the President, Vice President, Executive Board and Committee positions.

More than 90 individuals from 32 National Federations are running for 61 available positions, with current ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado running unopposed for another term.

According to ITU’s Constitution, the CVs of each candidate will be published on the ITU website on October 27, which is 45 days before Congress.

During the Congress, ITU has arranged space and time for each Committee and Confederation to hold end of year meetings, as well as attend a gala dinner. The last Executive Board meeting of 2016 will also be held prior to elections.
