At the ESERA Conference 2017 the following members of the ESERA Executive will stand down: Jim Ryder (Secretary) and Ellen Karoline Henriksen (responsible for Special Interest Groups). We are very grateful to Jim and Ellen for everything they have contributed to the ESERA Board and we look forward to their continued involvement and participation in ESERA.

Deadline for nominations: April 15, 2017. After that date, the nominations will be displayed on the ESERA website, and ESERA members will be invited to elect the new Executive through a secure electronic voting system between June 15 and August 22, 2017.

At the first meeting of the new Executive Board, which will be held immediately after the ESERA 2017 Conference, (a) the Secretary will take responsibility for the archives and running documents and (b) the other newly elected member will also participate fully in the active decision making of the Executive Board and will take over the portfolio on Special Interest Groups. This involves liaising with SIG Co-ordinators, promoting the development of new SIGs and presenting any new SIG proposals to the Board for discussion and approval.


The ESERA encourages interested members to apply.
