About EAPC Board Membership

Board elections take place every four years.  The next election will take place at the EAPC congress in 2023.

Candidates for the EAPC Board of Directors are proposed by EAPC National Associations. Candidates can also be proposed by a minimum of five individual EAPC members. EAPC Board members can stand once for re-election, so the maximum term of office is eight years. As palliative care is a multidisciplinary specialty, this should be reflected in the constitution of the board.  Board members are nominated by national associations or, in a few cases, by individual members. They are elected as individuals to service the EAPC for a four-year term, with one additional opportunity to be re-elected. The EAPC is keen to have board members from all disciplines, at all stages of their career, and from all parts of Europe. 

Proposed candidates (new nominees and nominees for re-election to the EAPC Board) must be:

  • a member of EAPC with the right to vote. Candidates are required to maintain full voting membership throughout their term on the board either as an individual EAPC member or a board member of their National Organisation
  • supported in writing by their EAPC National Association or five EAPC members with full voting membership
  • actively involved in Palliative Care in their own country
  • able to give sufficient time to the activities of the EAPC and attend a minimum of 50% of all board meetings
  • living or working in Europe
  • competent in English
What is expected of EAPC Board members?

During their tenure, EAPC board members are expected to be involved in a range of projects and initiatives and to play a significant role in the work of the EAPC. These initiatives are in line with the strategic objectives of the EAPC and include an active contribution to the programmes of the EAPC congresses and meetings.  Each EAPC task force, reference group and white paper writing group is also allocated a board link.   In order to ensure that the EAPC is responsive to its members, board members are asked to maintain regular contact with their national organisations and may also be asked to contact other member associations from other countries.
