The NACAC Athletes’ Commission Information Session, will begin by allowing President Mike Sands to welcome participants before going into a focus on ‘Who are we?’, allowing the athletes to introduce themselves and their understanding of why they are important to our sport as well as why the Commission is critical to their influencing the decision-making process.
Representatives of the World Athletics Athletes Commission will then explain who they are and what they do.
Then, representatives of the World Athletics Athletes’ Integrity Unit (AIU) will inform all athletes in attendance of the organization’s role and function.
