EAHIL Council election 2014 for the period 2015-2018

Call for nominations

The Council is an advisory group for the Board and acts as a link between the members in their country and the Association. Council members also have an important role in publicising EAHIL and recruiting new members. The Council usually meets formally once a year at the time of the annual EAHIL conference or workshop.

Councillors are elected for a term of four years by the voting EAHIL members resident in their country. Councillors may be re-elected once, after which they are not eligible for re-election until they have been absent from the Council for two years.

Each member state of the Council of Europe is eligible to elect councilors, provided that there are at least at least five voting members based in the country:

  • fewer than 5 voting members = 0 councillors
  • 5-29 voting members = 1 councillor
  • 30-54 voting members = 2 councillors
  • 55 and over = 3 councillors

This list linked here details the Council vacancies by country for the term starting in 2015. The available places were calculated based on a count of all EAHIL members on 8 May 2014. If the number of members increases by 26 September 2014, there may be an entitlement of an additional Councillor in some countries.
