Becoming a Member of the Board

Nomination of the candidates
Board elections take place every four years, the next elections are in Berlin in 2019 at the 16th EAPC World Congress.

Candidates for the EAPC Board of Directors are proposed by EAPC National Association's.  Candidates can also be proposed by a minimum of 5 individual EAPC members. EAPC Board members can stand once for re-election, so the maximum term of office is 8 years. As palliative care is a multidisciplinary specialty, this should be reflected in the consitution of the board.  At least two board members should be nurses.

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. 

Proposed candidates must be:

  • a member of EAPC with the right to vote
  • supported in writing by their National Association
  • 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
  • competent in English

Once nominated, the prospective candidate must:

  • submit a current Curriculum Vitae (short version only)
  • submit a brief Mission Statement (150-200 words) on how they can contribute to the work of the EAPC
  • submit a head shot photograph in JPEG.

 

The next board elections take place in Berlin at the EAPC World Congress in May 2019. For more information contact: info@eapcnet.eu
