UKAD Chief Executive Andy Parkinson has been re-elected as Chair of the Ad hoc European Committee for the World Anti-Doping Agency (CAHAMA).

Parkinson was re-elected following formal elections at the 29th meeting of CAHAMA held in Strasbourg, France, on Monday 5 May 2014. The 24 delegates voted unanimously in favour of Parkinson, whose position was unopposed following two years leading the committee.

Parkinson’s second two-year term is effective immediately.

As the only pan-European World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) forum, CAHAMA’s processes allow every European country to have access to information related to the governance of WADA and to play a role in the decision-making processes of WADA. CAHAMA also ensures that the expectations of all European countries are represented by European members of the WADA Foundation Board.

Parkinson said: “Over the past two years, the work of CAHAMA has proved influential on the world stage, contributing to a new World Anti-Doping Code that will strengthen our shared vision for clean sport.

“With the collective expertise of European nations, CAHAMA holds a credible and respected voice within the anti-doping movement. I look forward to continuing to lead and represent the Committee over the next two years.”
