EMEUNET Chairmanship

Since June 2021, the Chairmanship (former Steering Committee) comprises 2 members, the current chair and the past chair or chair-elect, depending on the year. The chair rotation occurs every two years at the end of the EULAR congress. When the new chair starts their mandate at EULAR, the previous chair becomes the past chair for one year. During the second year of mandate of the chair, the past chair leaves the chairmanship and the chair elect enters the chairmanship.

Before June 2021, the steering committee included 3 members, the past chairperson, current chairperson and chairperson-elect. Rotations occurred yearly at EULAR, with (starting in 2011) the previous past chairperson leaving the SC and the entrance of the new chairperson-elect.
