Board Members

The EHMA Board sits at the heart of our Governance process and Board Members play a pivotal role in helping to shape our strategy and oversee the delivery of our work programme. Board positions are open to all Members and we actively encourage applications that are subject to an electoral process that takes place as part of our Annual General Assembly, which takes place as part of our Annual Conference.
