Athletics South Africa (ASA) on Saturday will replace former president Leonard Chuene at a special general meeting that is currently underway in Kempton Park.
The positions of president and vice-president were left vacant after SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) found Chuene and his vice-president Kakata Maponyane guilty of financial impropriety.
The nominees put forward for the president's position include current ASA chairman James Evans.
Evans said a lot of work is needed to change the face of athletics.
"People involved in that level and not just a top sport but all the top sport have to be people who've got lot of experience and can handle things in a comma and not responding to circumstances but respond according to the principle ... and the policy that have been decided upon," he said.
Meanwhile, KwaZulu-Natal Athletics president Aleck Skhosana who is fielding off criticism from clubs in his province amid allegations of financial irregularities, has also been nominated for both president and vice-president.
