The Council role
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
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
