The Commissions

Following a decision made by the Badminton Europe membership, at the 2021 Annual Delegates' Meeting, a new Commission structure was introduced to concentrate on identified strategic focus areas of the Confederation.


The Board of Directors from time to time decides on which Commissions it wishes to organize for them to work on these key areas.


Each Commission includes 7-8members. These can be BEC Vice Presidents, Directors or external experts (from BEC Members).


The Commissions are foreseen to meet twice a year, in March (virtual) and October (physical). The President, General Secretary, Director for Finance and Athletes’ Representative are ex-officio members of all Commissions.


Each Commission will report to the BEC Committees.  


All external Commission members are identified based on a transparent process and based on an invitation for suitable candidates circulated to all Members.


The five Commissions are:


1. Governance

2. Participation

3. Member Support

4. High Performance

5. Entertainment


Each of the areas has a dedicated section in the BEC Strategic Plan which serves as the basis for the work of each Commission and helps to determine the terms of reference of the Commissions.
