ERS elections and open positions

Alongside an opportunity for members to take on official and essential roles within the European Respiratory Society (ERS) structure, ERS members also have an opportunity to have their say about the future leaders of the Society through open voting.

Senior leadership elections

Voting will open soon in the 2021 ERS senior leadership elections. ERS members will have the opportunity to vote for their preferred candidates to fulfil the following Executive Committee roles:

  • Vice President (who will successively become ERS President Elect and then ERS President)

Member votes are extremely important, and we encourage all members to have your say on the future of our Society by voting in ERS elections.
