As always, at this year's EATAW conference a new board will be elected to lead the organisation for the next two years. The election will take place on Thursday, June 30, 2011. All those present at the conference who have been members of EATAW for one year are entitled to vote. Membership will be determined on the basis of the membership list. Those who attended the 2009 conference in Coventry who have not formally renewed their membership will be considered to be continuing members without interruption of membership.
For the 2011 EATAW elections, the following arrangements will apply:
Members of EATAW present at the conference who have been associated with the organisation for at least two years, and have presented at at least one previous conference, may stand for election to the Board.
