Last week, the Europeana Network Association’s Members Council met at the Austrian National Library in Vienna. It was a chance to come together to discuss the year so far, as well as plan for the next six months ahead. Here, Max Kaiser, Chair of the Members Council, and Merete Sanderhoff, Vice Chair of the Members Council, fill us in on the day’s events.
A springlike Copenhagen and the Statens Museum for Kunst played host to the first Europeana Members Council meeting in 2016. This meeting was particularly exciting for us as it was a chance to celebrate the Europeana Network Association’s first anniversary and get to know our newly elected colleagues.
The Network Association elects a Members Council every year and this year we have 30 councillors in total. All of them play a critical role across Europeana’s activities, from prioritising issues in the Business Plan, to setting the agenda for our annual conference.
