Over the last week, members of European Alternatives were called to vote for the election of two new members to the transnational board. The transnational board is composed of a maximum of 8 members, with 4 elected by members of European Alternatives, and up to 4 co-opted by the board itself to build relationships with member organisations or to bring additional capacities to the organisation. Meet the two freshly elected board members below!
