Members Council

Give your community an active role in Europeana’s governance.

The Network’s elected Members Council plays a crucial role across all our activities, from prioritising the issues that Europeana addresses to setting the agenda for our annual conference.

Members of its executive body, the Management Board, also sit on the Foundation Board, representing the Network in the Foundation’s executive decision-making.

To make sure your views and those of your peers are represented , we encourage you to channel your views through the councillor who best represents your sector and interests. If you are a Network member and would like to get involved in Europeana’s goverance, then why not run for a position? Elections happen on a yearly basis.
