Want to be the new ECG co-Chair?
Carl is stepping down as the current ECG co-Chair, which means there is room for another! Since the current ECG co-Chairs all represent Zone 1 member countries, we would like to specifically, but not exclusively encourage members of Zones 2,3 and 4 to apply to join the ECG Chair team, thus ensuring that the ECG Chair team is representative of the the diversity of its members.
If you are interested, please fill in this form before July 31st and we will get back to you!
