The member-associations committee deals with relations between Fifa and its members. It draws up proposals for optimum cooperation. The committee also monitors the evolution of the statutes and regulations of Fifa, the confederations and members.
According to a statement from Fifa, the appointments were made following the recent announcement by Fifa president Joseph Sepp-Blatter to revise and restructure the global bodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s standing committees.
The associations committee is chaired by Senes Erzik from Turkey. Three other African members in the committee are Mohamed Raouraoua from Algeria, Hamidou Djibrilla from Niger and Adam Mthethwa from Swaziland.
Nyamilandu has said he feels honoured to be recognised at global level for the contribution he has made towards the game in the past seven years he was at the helm of Malawi football.
“I look forward to contributing positively towards issues affecting associations world-wide,” he said.
Nyamilandu is also in the organising committee of the Championship of African Nations (Chan) and is an executive committee member of the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (Cosafa).
He also served in the organising committee of the Africa Cup of Nations and contested for Cosafa blocÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s CAF executive membership position last year and lost to ZambiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s legend Kalusha Bwalya.
His appointment comes barely a month after he was re-elected as FAM president.
