Elections to the EATAW Board are held biennially at the EATAW Conference. The next elections will be held on our next conference 2019.
Nominations for election will be accepted up to four weeks in advance of the date of the elections. Candidates standing for election must have a demonstrated interest and experience in the teaching of academic writing, must have been associated with EATAW for two years, and must have attended at least one earlier EATAW conference. Members of EATAW working in countries outside Europe may stand for election. Under extreme or extenuating circumstances candidates can stand for the board in absentia. This would involve explaining in the presentation to the membership why the candidate is unable to attend the conference. Candidates standing in absentia must be able to attend the post-conference board meeting via online media.
