On Friday afternoon, June 7, the FIB Executive Committee (EC) held its last meeting ahead of the 2024 FIB Congress, in Stockholm, Sweden. Even though it was its last meeting before a new Executive Committee is elected at the FIB Congress, they made several important decisions. Among them was the appointment of the FIB Athletes Committee which then shall be ratified today, Saturday 8 June, by the FIB Congress. 

The EC also approved the Terms of Reference of the FIB Hall of Fame and appointed Magnus Sköld as the Chair of the Board of Trustees. 

One of the main goal of the EC was to harmonize the event related documents for the different type of FIB Events in order to ensure that the same conditions apply for each host.
