1 September 2019 – At the AGM in Paris on 8 July 2019 the EJTA members decided to start a 3-year pilot to strengthen the managerial potential of EJTA through appointing an EJTA Director for two days a week.
The Director will take care of all operational tasks (in close collaboration with the EJTA Secretariat), will coordinate current (e.g. EUfactcheck, DESTIN) and future projects and will manage relations with present and future funders (e.g. Council of Europe, Evens Foundation). The Board will be able to focus on its strategic tasks.
EJTA members agreed unanimously with the current General Secretary, Nadia Vissers, taking this position and gave the Board the mandate to take all the necessary steps.
The 3-year pilot period with an EJTA Director starts from 1 September 2020 onwards and will be evaluated yearly.
