ERA OPEN CALLS 2022

ORDINARY COUNCIL MEMBERS

Election of a new Ordinary Council Member (1 vacancy)

Reserved to ERA full active members

During the General Assembly in 2022, one new Ordinary Council Member must be elected. Kindly note that no German, Italian or Spanish members can apply since there are already two representatives within the Council from these countries: according to the ERA Constitution no more than two candidates can be from the same country (meaning their country of residence).

The ERA Council strongly supports the idea of being as representative and inclusive as possible, thus members, in particular women, young members and members from countries that are not represented in any of the current Council, Working Groups and Committees, are encouraged to participate actively in these elections, both by submitting their candidatures and/or voting.
