EuroMarine opens on 6 Jan. 2021 its annual call for candidates to join its Steering Committee (SC) - to be partially renewed every year from 2016 on, as decided by the General Assembly (GA) during its 2015 meeting.
Three positions are open to candidates for 2021. (As decided by the GA in 2019, there are alternatively 2 and 3 open positions each year.)
- SC candidates must attend the 26-27 Jan. 2021 online GA meeting and briefly present their application before the GA.
- SC candidates commit to devote part of their time to serve the EuroMarine community (during and outside meetings).
- Participation in SC meetings is an in-kind contribution of Member Organisations (at least until the EuroMarine budget exceeds the target set by the Business Plan). SC candidates must therefore obtain support of their organisation to apply, or otherwise fund their participation in any physical meetings on their own budget.
- The SC would welcome applications from candidates whose election could broaden or strengthen areas of expertise or regions 'represented' in the SC, or would improve multiple balances.
Please refer to the attached call text for details.
Candidates are invited to fill in and return the attached 2021 SC candidate form to secretariateuromarinenetwork [dot] eu by 24 January 2021.
The General Assembly will vote for candidates during its 26-27 Jan. 2021 online meeting. While their term officially starts in July 2021, the newly elected SC members will be invited to attend the online SC meeting that will be held on 27 Jan. afternoon after the GA meeting, and to participate in any online SC meeting or email exchanges prior to the start of their term.
