As you might remember, in September I invited all registered Network Association members to come forward as candidates for our Members Council. Today, I have the pleasure of introducing the 30 candidates who will be running in this year’s elections, each hoping to win one of seven available seats.

From the United States to the Scottish Highlands, Romania to Russia, the group represent a diverse mix of nationalities - and this diversity is reflected in their priorities too. Open Data, audiovisual archives, academic research, multiculturalism… There are plenty of areas these prospective Councillors are ready to get to work on. It’s a testament to the broad range of expertise in our Network.

So, without further ado, the candidates looking to represent you are:

You can read more about each of them on our dedicated Candidate Profiles page.

They’ll be campaigning hard to win your support from now until the voting begins on 3 November at the Europeana Network Association AGM in Amsterdam (register now). While you’re deciding who to back in the ballots, you’ll be able to follow their campaigns via our Europeana LinkedIn group and by keeping an eye on the hashtag #EuropeanaElects.

Once voting opens at the AGM, you’ll be able to cast your vote online - you’ll have a week to select your preferred candidates.

Best of luck to all the candidates!
