ESRA 2023 Call for New Committee Members

The European Survey Research Association has published a Call for Nominations for new committee members, to be appointed in elections this Spring.

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers from across the survey research community who are interested in contributing some of their time to support the association’s activities. These include organising the biennial ESRA conference, developing an offer of short courses, and sponsoring other educational activities, including thematic conferences and bursaries for early career researchers. We are looking for proactive and motivated committee members who can support the running of the association, and collaborate with other committee members in the development of new ideas for future initiatives.

ESRA seeks to appoint new committee members who will contribute to the work of subcommittees responsible for areas including:

  • Communications (website management and social media)
  • Memberships
  • Education
  • Sponsorship
  • Bursaries
  • GDPR
  • Task forces
  • Etc.

The precise role will be agreed within the committee at the start of the new member’s term and the preferences and qualifications of the nominees/candidates will be taken into consideration.

The positions are open to members of ESRA wishing to contribute to the coordination of ESRA’s activities on a volunteer basis, and appointment will be decided by election. The term of office for ESRA Committee members is generally six years, during which time there is the opportunity to rotate between roles every two years.

ESRA is a registered charity in the United Kingdom and on appointment Committee members become trustees of the charity. For further details see:
