Elections 2023

Ordinary Council Members

Election of a new Ordinary Council Member (2 vacancies)

Reserved to ERA Full Active Members

During the General Assembly in 2023, two new Ordinary Council Members must be elected.

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 by submitting their candidatures.
