Q3 - When are the elections for elections for National Representatives (NR) & Deputy National Representatives (DNR)?

The elections for National Representatives (NR) & Deputy National Representatives (DNR) will be postponed for 6 months. The EACH Executive Committee recognises that this is a difficult time for many and that the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a lot of additional work and stress for many members. The committee therefore felt it was not an appropriate time to ask members to engage in this time consuming election process. All members will be invited to apply for the positions of National and Deputy National Representatives in 2021. In the meantime, existing NR & DNRs have agreed to extend their term for 6 months & those NRs who are in need of a DNR have the opportunity to recruit for one within their country. Please email elections@each.eu if you have any questions.
