The FIS Academy will be holding three management education modules at the FIS Congress. These modules cost a total of €250. The 6-day Program, tailored to the needs of the FIS Family, will be held in the week following the Congress in Manchester (GBR).
If you wish to attend both of these courses, the cost of the modules will be deducted from the cost of the 6-day program, making the 6-day program cost €4195.
FIS is pleased to announce the appointment of Marcel Looze (NED) to the position of FIS Snowboard Race Director. He will commence officially from 1st June, 2006 but will, however, also be present in his new position at the 45th International Ski Congress in Vilamoura/Algarve (POR) from 21st to 27th May, 2006.
Succeeding Alex Höller, who returns to the family business, Marcel Looze (40) brings to his new role a diverse set of skills and experience with several sport disciplines. A member of the FIS Snowboard and Alpine Committees since 2000 and of the FIS Children and Youth Committee since 2003, he also understands the challenges and responsibilities faced by event organizers, having organized several FIS Snowboard World Cup and European Cup events between 2003-2005. Day-to-day sports management know-how collected in his current role as Technical Manager at the Netherlands Ski Association, and previously as Elite Sports Manager at the Netherlands Triathlon Association and as the owner of an event organizing firm, round up Looze’s profile as a multi-faceted sports professional.
“I am very excited about this opportunity and I believe that I will be able to both sustain the on-going development and bring some new ideas to the Nokia Snowboard FIS World Cup”, says Looze and adds:”I am really looking forward to working together with the entire Snowboard family.”
