1. to promote the specific sporting interest of its division, with due observance to the recommendations of the Admincom.

2. to draw up rules for events containing the words 'Europe', 'European', ‘Africa’, ‘African’ or 'E&A' in their title and ensure that all orders and instructions necessary for the organisation and the running of those events are respected.
