Dear EUSPR Members,

Nominations are now open for the elections to the 2022 – 2025 EUSPR Board positions of: 

  • President Elect
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • 6 additional Board members

The EUSPR Board plays a central role in the work of the Society and its strategic development. Membership of the Board provides an exciting opportunity to be part of this work, and to develop new skills and experience.

The Society actively encourages nominations from across its membership, and is committed to promoting principles of equality and diversity. After 10 years of presidencies held by male EUSPR members, we strongly insist in encouraging female candidates for president-elect to come forward.
Please note the deadline for nominations is 29/04/22.

The election results will be announced at the 2022 Members Meeting. Selection will be via electronic voting which will take place between 08/07/22 and 07/08/22.
