The nine Commissions and Working Groups were launched in December 2013 as part of ANOC President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah’s commitment to implementing a process of reform and modernisation across the organisation.

ANOC President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah said:

“When I took over as President of ANOC in April 2012 one of my core objectives was to develop our organisation and the support we provide our 205 NOCs. By establishing nine ANOC Commissions and Working Groups we have been able to leverage the vast experience and expertise we have within our membership and create a platform for them to meet regularly, discuss the most pressing issues facing NOCs and identify and implement solutions.

“The Commissions and Working Groups did a fantastic job last year in presenting comprehensive action plans for 2015 to the ANOC General Assembly. Under the leadership of the IOC and Olympic Agenda 2020 we have seen the importance of ensuring that collaborative discussions lead to decisions and definite action. After a year of conception, 2015 will be the year of implementation for ANOC. We have shown over the last three years that we are an organisation which delivers on its promises and we are committed to continuing to do just that. The initiatives proposed by the Commissions and Working Groups will directly benefit the NOCs and their athletes and improve the support we offer them.”
