Mrs Elena Baturina.

The following items were discussed, decided and/or would be referred to

The Bureau reviewed the proposed modifications of the Statutes and
General Regulations. Generally speaking, many changes reflect practical
considerations and current practices.

The following points were especially noteworthy:

Associate membership
It was explained that Associate Membership is no longer needed as the
full membership procedure was adapted to take into consideration the
lower income members.

The Secretary Generalís responsibilities for the management of the FEI
Secretariat were clarified and Department Heads were formally mentioned.
A Management Board composed of the Secretary General, the Sport Director
and the Head of Finance Department was established in order to
facilitate the coordination of the Secretariat duties.

A new Commercial Division will be established within the Secretariat in
response to the proposed Business Plan to handle the evolving marketing
needs of the FEI.

An organisational chart would be produced to clarify the new structure.

Legal structure
Chapter VIII concerning the Legal structure was significantly remodelled
to simplify procedures, to strengthen decision making processes, and to
encourage use of arbitration when resolving disputes.

The Treasurer presented the provisional budget. The Bureau took note
that, due to the difficult world economic situation, the budget might
show a loss for 2003 and that cost reductions might be necessary.
