One male representative from the Pistol group and one male representative from the Rifle group are to be elected during the 2014 European Championship 10m in Moscow, Russia. One female representative will be elected by the participants of the 2014 European Championship Shotgun in Sarlóspuszta, Hungary.

According to the Guidelines approved by the XXIV ESC General Assembly, the Athletes’ Committee is composed of 7 members – 1 man and 1 woman from the Pistol group, 1 man and 1 woman from the Rifle group, 1 man and 1 woman in Shotgun and 1 man or woman in Running Target. By the time of their nomination/election the candidates must be participating in European and/or international level competitions in the corresponding discipline groups (Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Running Target) or must have done so during the past four years 2010, 2011, 2012 or 2013.
