Brian Agerbak, General Secretary at Badminton Europe, has a message for all new members, who will support the commission work for European badminton. 

- I want to welcome all new commission members, I am confident that they will do a great job. I am happy that there is a huge interest by our member associations to nominate candidates for the commission work, he said.

- It is very important for us to ensure diversity as well as new ideas, and to get the input from experts from particular areas of badminton. I hope that it will be mutually beneficial for the new commission members, as they also extend their horizons, he added.  

Contribution to develop badminton in Europe
