Looking for a new challenge?
Would you like to be part of the future of neurology in Europe?
Then now is your chance! Following the election of the next EAN Board (taking place on 25 June, 2022, during the Assembly of Delegates), the board will be looking for new officers to join the ranks of its committees and working groups!
Separate calls for expressions of interest for the positions of Education Committee Chair and Programme Committee Chair will also be published in the near future.
More information about the Board, Assembly of Delegates, and committees can be found in the EAN Bylaws.
After more than seven highly successful and productive years, EAN aims to continue the excellent work of its dedicated officers while giving new colleagues the opportunity to contribute and bring fresh perspectives towards our mission to reduce the burden of neurological disease in Europe.
All EAN officers must be (or become) EAN Full Individual members, must attend the EAN annual congress, and at least one other face-to-face meeting during the year. Regular email contact is expected, as well as participation in monthly tele-conferences. Expenses for any meetings outside the congress will be reimbursed by EAN, but the position is otherwise carried out entirely on a voluntary basis.
On average, EAN committee work amounts to two hours per week. Members of our standing committees serve EAN for a two-year term, with a possible extension for a further term of two years.
Applications will be considered by the Board and EAN President during the summer, based on qualifications and specialty while considering gender balance and currently underrepresented nationalities.
If you are interested, please send a short CV and brief outline (~ 250 words) of your specific experience and expertise to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, 7 June, 2022.
We are asking for expressions of interest to join the committees and working groups listed below:
