Executive Committee

The Executive Committee

The heart of EAIR is its members. But in the background, the Executive Committee (EC) is working to accompany the history of EAIR into the future.


The EC consists of nine people who are responsible for various portfolios and a nominated president. All are volunteers and elected by the EAIR-members for a three-year period. The EC is supported by a part-time coordinator, who is responsible for the organisation of EAIR, the yearly Forum, and effective management of operational systems.
