The YESS Council

The YESS Council is open to all active YESS members interested in shaping the development and activities of the community. The Council consists of people from everywhere around the world and is open for new members at any time of the year. Each year the Council members elect an Executive Committee to guide the activities of the YESS community and the Regional Representatives to support international growth and regional outreach. Council members meet in regular teleconferences to develop new ideas and form a lively community, for example, by supporting events at conferences or spreading the word about YESS. The Council member’s activities are mainly organized within the working groups.

The Council members for the current term 2019/2020 are listed here.
