EAA BOARDS AND COMMITTEES

The EAA is a fully democratic body which consists of various boards and committees whose members are chosen through an annual election process. The activities of the Association are co-ordinated through these groups together with a full-time Secretariat.

The EAA EXECUTIVE BOARD consists of three or four Officers (President, Incoming President, Treasurer, and Secretary) and six Ordinary Members, all of whom are elected by the membership. Additionally, the Board elects a Vice-President from its voting membership, who then also serves as an Officer and who remains in the position until the end of his/her elected mandate. The Vice-President can be re-elected to a second term. Each term on the Executive Board is for a three year period. One Officer and two Ordinary Members retire from the Executive Board each year at the Annual Membership Business Meeting. No member of the Executive Board can serve for more than two consecutive terms. The Executive Board can also make up to three co-options each year either to fill the places of elected members who are unable to fulfil their duties or who can specifically assist their work in some way.
Members are welcome to review the minutes of the Executive Board meetings.
In order to contact EAA Officers and Executive Board members, the use of institutional EAA email addresses is preferred for the sake of continuity:
