*THIS PAGE IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED FOLLOWING THE RECENT SC ELECTIONS
Until December 2013 ESP has been governed by a (provisional) executive committee consisting of representatives of the ESP founding organisations. In January 2014, ESP members have elected members of the steering committee which consists of 30 members.
The purpose of the steering committee is to advise the executive committee, provide oversight of the operation and governance of the ESP, and make broader decisions affecting the general membership of the ESP, including changes in membership fees and membership classes.
The steering committee meets annually at ESP conferences while for internal communication a google group has been set up.
The steering committee held a first steering committee meeting at the 8th ESP conference in San Jose, Costa Rica, 2014. You can download the minutes from the meeting here.
The activities of the steering committee are reported to the membership forum, which takes place at the ESP conferences. The activity report for 2014 and 2015 is available here.
Currently we are finalising the election of a new steering committee. All ESP members can vote in the SC election. The election will also consider the rules adopted in the proposal for an Affirmative Action Strategy which ensures balanced contributions of different regions and gender.
The new steering committee will soon be listed on this page.
