At the AGM in Helsinki the (re-)elections for the board will take place. There is one vacancy.
An easy way of getting acquainted with being part of the ESSDA board is to become a general board member. You can experience what board meetings are about (on average four Skype meetings a year) and what kind of work is done in between meetings. This work is divided among all board members, taking into account board members’ skills and preference.
If you want to stand up and help our dance community move forward, please apply for a board position by mailing a brief motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably on 1st June 2016 at the latest. Your motivation letter will be forwarded to all Essda members for the elections at the AGM on 1st July.
