EONS Executive Board elections 2017

First election round EONS Executive Board: results now available!

The election results will now move forward to the EONS General Meeting for member approval. This meeting is scheduled to take place on the morning of Sunday 19 November, before the EONS Advisory Council meeting/Leadership Summit in Ede, The Netherlands. (The exact time of the meeting will be communicated in due course.)

The following persons put forward their candidacy for one of the two positions:

We would like to thank all the candidates for standing in the election and for offering their experience and time to EONS. We also thank everyone who actively engaged with the work of EONS by participating in the voting process.

Second round of elections to EONS Executive Board Elections (Board Member): call for nominations now open!

The EONS Executive Board has launched a second election process to identify a Board Member for the Society, due to the further vacancy that has arisen as a result of the election of Andreas Charalambous as President-Elect.

Nominations would ideally be received from candidates with an interest in the Board Member - Research role but this is not obligatory.

The timing of this second election process has been scheduled to allow candidates who were unsuccessful in the first election round to resubmit their nomination form to this second call for the role of Board Member - Research.

EONS full members (i.e. individual members and National Oncology Nursing Society members) are now invited to provide nominations for the role of Executive Board Member.

If you have provided EONS with an email address, you should have received the call for nominations with the nomination form, role description and the second election process by email. These are available in the Further Information section of this page as well.

The deadline for the receipt of fully completed, signed nomination forms by the EONS Secretariat is Thursday 17 August 2017, 12.00 CET.
