International representatives

Over 280 Dutch representatives sit on European and international sports boards and committees. They include the IPC Governing Board member Rita van Driel and the president of the International Skating Union (ISU) Jan Dijkema.

The Dutch sports sector is happy to contribute to the development of international sport by sharing its expertise in international boards and committees regarding themes such as recreational and top-level sport, sport for persons with a disability, and indeed in matters relating to the role of sport in society. It does so by participating in international forums, conferences and meetings. NOC*NSF is frequently involved in international outreach programmes such as the GEO project. 

NOC*NSF provides active support to Dutch officials who occupy positions in international forums. It organises conferences and networking meetings for them, facilitates mentoring processes between incoming and more experienced officials, and cooperates with the Nordic NOCs in a training course for talented administrative officials.
