ERRIN is run by a Management Board which is responsible for defining strategic orientations for the network.
The Management Board consists of 15 representatives, who are elected from ERRIN’s membership for a period of three years, with one-third of the sitting Board members being up for election each year. The sitting Board also elects a treasurer every year to oversee the ERRIN’s finances. The current Treasurer is Jan Urlings, Greater Birmingham & West Midlands Brussels Office.
The Management Board is presided over by a Chair and two Vice Chairs elected by the Management Board and ratified by the Annual General Assembly. The ERRIN Chair is Lars Holte Nielsen, Central Denmark EU Office, with Ludovico Monforte, Union Camere Lombardia and Sarah English, Scotland Europa as Vice Chairs. The Chair and the Vice-Chairs work closely with the ERRIN Director and represent ERRIN at important meetings and events.
The Management Board meets regularly throughout the year to define ERRIN’s priorities and give guidance to the ERRIN Secretariat. Its main responsibilities include preparing ERRIN’s Annual Work Plan and taking responsibility for its implementation in line with the budget. The Management Board also provides direction for the activities of ERRIN’s Working Groups, and decides on ERRIN’s involvement in strategic projects and partnerships.
