Call for candidates to the EUNIS Board of Directors 2021

We are actively seeking new candidatures to the EUNIS Board of Directors from the regular members of EUNIS.

If, as a regular member representative, you are interested in putting forward your candidature to act on the Board of Directors of EUNIS, we kindly ask you to send an email by close of business on 6th of June 2021 with a short biography, photo and outlining the motivation of your interest to:

Ms. Anna Pacholak, EUNIS Administration & Communications Manager: anna.pacholak@eunis.org

The Board of Directors of EUNIS commits itself to make all efforts to solicit candidatures of excellently qualified female candidates to run for vacant board positions, in line with the policy of an inclusive and diverse organisation.

The EUNIS 2021 General Assembly (GA) is scheduled for the 17th of June 2021 at 14.00 -16.00 CEST online, after the Annual EUNIS Congress in Virtual Athens (9th-11th June 2021). Due to the COVID-19 outbreak its online edition will replace the “face to face” Congress originally planned for Athens on the same dates.

All official representatives of EUNIS Members are entitled to take part in the GA meeting. This forum is where the decisions related to the EUNIS’ structure and organisation are made and updates from the EUNIS Special Interest Groups and the Board are presented. The General Assembly has two other very important duties: the election of EUNIS members to the EUNIS Board; and approval of the EUNIS budget that will be presented by the Treasurer.

Those representatives of European Higher Education and Research institutions (regular members) that have paid their annual fee and that are in good order in relation to arrears are entitled to take part in the voting and elections to the Board with one vote per institution.
