Vacancies at ECPYouth
The ECPYouth Board has decided to open three vacancies for Board positions. Deadline for application is 6 October 2018. Please find the vacancies here.
We would like to give you some backgrond information why we open these vacancies at this moment.
At the General Assembly on 21 July 2018 in Wroclaw, Jan Henric van Vliet was elected as Treasurer, Hanna Stretovych as Board Member Events and another person as Secretary. Furthermore, the General Assembly decided to continue the selection procedure and to extend the term of the Selection Committee in order to find a new person for the position of President.
Since then, two recent developments occurred that will greatly impact this new selection process. First, due to circumstances he explains in a letter to the Members, our Board Member Communications Ardjan Boersma decided that he will step down as Board Member in November. (See Letter Ardjan Boersma). This means that a vacancy for this position has to be put online as well. Secondly, shortly after the GA, the person elected as Secretary and the Board decided to not continue cooperation. The person stepped down as Secretary, which meant that the vacancy for Secretary had to be reopened as well. Summarizing, three vacancies will be (re)openend, respectively for the positions of President, Secretary and Board Member of Communications.
The timeline for the selection procedure is as follows.
- 8 September 2018 – Publishing vacancies
