The EFC received 86 nominations from 28 federations for places on the 10 commissions, with our five appointments being recognition of Great Britain’s expertise in a broad range of specialist areas. 

Speaking about the appointments British Fencing’s President, Hilary Philbin, said: “I’m very pleased to be appointed to the EFC’s Competitions Commission and my congratulations go out to our four other British representatives.  These important appointments ensure that British Fencing’s voice is heard on the international stage, more specifically in Europe, and that we continue to play our part in the ongoing development of fencing.”
