Following requests from National Federations, the FEI (Federation Equestrian Internationale) Bureau has agreed to extend the period of consultation on new FEI Statutes that would allow for restructuring of the current FEI governance model. The vote on restructuring had originally been scheduled to take place at an Extraordinary General Assembly at the FEI’s new headquarters in Lausanne (SUI) on May 6, 2011.
The consultation process, which started on January 18th, sought input from the National Federations and the Bureau on the restructuring proposal. Following this input, a first draft of the revised Statutes was sent to the National Federations on February 11th, with a deadline of March 25th for receipt of further comments.
However, a number of National Federations have requested an extended timeframe for the consultative process and the Bureau has acceded to this request.
The Extraordinary General Assembly will still take place on May 6th as scheduled and the agenda will include a vote on statutory changes relating to FEI Development, a session on the format of an annual Sports Forum, and a debate on the restructuring process, ensuring the input of National Federations.
The official opening of the new FEI Headquarters in Lausanne will also take place on May 6th after the Extraordinary General Assembly.
