The President-Elect is elected for two years and then becomes the President for another two years; thereafter, they become the Past President for an additional two years. The President is the Chair of the EC and presides over all Members’ meetings. In close collaboration with other EC members, they oversee all EAPP and EC activities, formulate and set out the strategic vision and purpose of the association, and represent the EAPP in official communications, among other tasks. The President-Elect collaborates with the President to learn the role of the President and is ideally someone who is familiar with the EAPP and its mission, goals, and values.

The Treasurer is responsible for all aspects of the financial management of the association, working closely with other members of the EC to safeguard EAPP’s finances. This includes general financial oversight; financial planning and budgeting; financial reporting; banking, bookkeeping, and record-keeping. The Treasurer’s term length is 4 years.

According to the statutes of the EAPP, any member of the association can nominate potential candidates and is eligible to be nominated as President-Elect or Treasurer.
