Governing Body Elections

The Governing Body (GB) is the international board of EYP. The GB directs the organisation and is responsible for the strategic development of the EYP. The Governing Body consists of six elected members and a representative of the Schwarzkopf Foundation, our international umbrella organisation.

Extraordinary GB elections in July/August 2018

As one member of the GB has decided to resign and step down after 6 months of her term, we are holding extraordinary elections to fill the vacant spot. EYP’s National Committees will elect a new teacher to the GB, to fill the vacant spot for about 18 months, until the end of December 2019. Each National Committee will have one vote, and the candidate with the highest number of votes is elected, provided that she/he has received a minimum of 20% of the total number of National Committee votes.

Voting will take place online, between Monday 06 August 2018 and Sunday 12 August 2018.

In this election, a teacher quota applies whereby the vacant spot will have to be filled by a teacher. If you are
interested in running, please see further instructions here and find a candidate questionnaire here. Candidates have to submit their candidacy via elections@eyp.org by Sunday, July 29, 2018.
