“We are also seeking nominations for the commission that oversees the growth of the women’s game. 

“Given the rapid expansion of Touch demonstrated by our largest Touch World Cup in Malaysia which attracted teams from all corners of the globe, we are looking to fill these positions before Christmas.”

The commission positions that are seeking nominations include: 

  1. Women’s Commission Chairperson
  2. Women’s Commission Member

A sub-committee appointed from the FIT Board of Directors will consider nominations for the committee positions, according to Mr Ker. “In making its determinations, the sub-committee will consider the most appropriate individuals for appointments.” 

The term of appointment for each position will continue until one month after the next election of FIT Board members at the FIT World Cup 2023.
