Call for candidates and election of three new Steering Committee (SC) members
Three new SC members should be elected during the GA meeting (as prescribed by SC renewal rules). The call for candidates will open in Fall. GA representatives or other individuals afflilated with a EuroMarine Full Member Organisation willing to join the Steering Committee to serve the EuroMarine community can for the time being refer to last year's (2017) call for candidates. While their term will officially start in July 2018, the three new SC members will be invited (if present) to attend the SC meeting that will be held on 19 Jan. AM after the GA meeting, and to participate in any online SC meeting or email exchanges prior to the official start of their term.
A provisional programme will be posted here soon. The overall structure of the meeting is as follows:
- Wed. 17 Jan. afternoon: registration and half-day GA meeting (reporting, presentation of outcome of selected EuroMarine activities, discussion...)
