Here is your chance to get a temporary position on the APECS Council Leadership before the opening of next term's election! We are looking for two people to replace two Council Co-Chairs (CCCs) until the end of the term (30 September 2023). Note that this position requires a high degree of commitment (around 1 hour/week), so before applying you should ensure that you will have the time to fulfill the responsibilities of this role.

As a CCC, you are responsible for working with all the Council members, particularly Project Group (PG) Leaders. The Council Co-Chairs provide a link between the Council, the Executive Committee, and the International Directorate. They organize the Council meetings during the term, ensure that the activities of the Council members are carried out (e.g. Council reports, PG reports, etc.), offer support, and encourage collaboration between PGs.

This position offers you valuable insights into the APECS Council Leadership and is a great chance to experince the role on a shorter basis before applying for the CCC position for the coming full APECS term (applications for 2023-2024 Council leadership will open 20 June and close 3 July). To apply for this temporary position, send a short statement of interest to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 22 May 2023. The statement should include your motivation and a list of what you have done within and for APECS (some sentences and some bullet points - maximum 350 words). The successful applicants will be contacted around 1-2 weeks after the application deadline.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are looking forward to receiving your application.
