THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

The Management Committee is the management body of the ECDN. It is elected by the General Assembly from among the active members of the Association, and for a term of four years. Their job is to handle the day to day business of the Association and derives their authority from the General Assembly. It is the job of the Management Committee to prepare and plan the annual meeting of the General Assembly in collaboration with the Coordination office; they prepare drafts for changes in the statutes and internal rules, and the treasurer prepares the annual budget and account of the Association.

The Management Committee manages the collaboration with external work partners and handles the external relations of the association. Furthermore, the Management Committee elects from among its own rank the President, Vice-President and Treasurer of the association. The Management Committee meets at least three times annually or if the Association or the General Assembly requires them to do so.

The Current Management Committee, which you can see below, was elected at the General Assembly in Copenhagen in 2018. The term of the General Assembly lasts for 4 years, after which a new Management Committee is elected by the General Assembly. Active members of the ECDN can be elected multiple times to the Management Committee, and frequently 1-3 members are reelected.
