The successfully elected candidates will join the current members: Hannah England (Chair), John Pares (Vice-Chair), Richard Yates (Vice-Chair), Abdul Buhari, Vanessa Wallace. Results will be announced during the week commencing 28 October 2019

Since its formation in 2017, the initial cohort of 12 members and four ex-officio members abide by the principle of striving to promote a healthy and productive relationship between the athletes the Commission represent, and the National Governing Body.
