Call for Nomination 2019 Election EAIR Executive Committee
The EAIR Executive Committee consists of nine elected members (Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and five other elected members), nominated by and elected from the Association's membership for a period of three years.
Your EAIR relies upon a strong, active and vibrant Executive Committee (EC) to further develop the association.
This year there will be three vacancies for the Executive Committee:
Rosalind Pritchard, EAIR’s Secretary, has served the EAIR Executive Committee for four periods of three years. She will stand for election for a fifth period of three years. She holds the portfolio “Meetings & Operational Management”.
Ton Kallenberg, EAIR’s Treasurer, co-opted for the year 2015, has served the EAIR Executive Committee from 2016 for one period of three years. He will stand for election for a second period of three years. He holds the portfolio “Finances & Operational management”.
Mark O’Hara has served the EAIR Executive Committee for one period of three years. He will stand for election for a second period of three years. He holds the portfolio “Annual Forum”.
Clarification of the responsibility placed on each member of the EC:
It is expected that the elected member will actively contribute to achieving the objectives of the society.
Specifically, each elected member to the EC will hold a portfolio of tasks in one or more aspects of the EAIR’s activities.
It is expected that all EC members, in person, attend both the Annual EC November meeting in the Netherlands and the Annual EAIR Forum (including a pre- and post-Forum EC meeting, both taking place at or near the Forum venue).
EAIR will only cover your accommodation expenses for the Annual EC November meeting in the Netherlands. This EC meeting usually starts on a Friday (late morning) and ends on the Saturday – early afternoon.
Travel expenses to and from the Annual EC November meeting in the Netherlands and the Annual EAIR Forum are the responsibility of the elected member to the committee as are the accommodation expenses for the Annual EAIR Forum.
