ESEH next biennial ordinary general meeting (OGM) Announce

Dear members of the ESEH,

I'm writing today to announce our next biennial ordinary general meeting (OGM), which will take place as an online event despite the fact that we postponed the Bristol conference to 2022. There are indeed a number of institutional duties that we have to accomplish independently of the fact that we will not have a physical meeting: approve the activities of the outgoing board, assess the society's finances, decide possible changes to the membership fees and vote for a new board, some regional representatives, and the financial control committee.

The OGM will take place on July 9, 2021 at 11:00 CEST as a Zoom webinar. The outgoing board will present the relevant reports for the past two years and the candidates for the new board will briefly introduce themselves. Questions will be taken in written form on Zoom's chat and answered live during the webinar.

Elections will take place as a Surveymonkey poll. Details about all candidates running for the different open positions are available on our website:<>. Current members will receive an email invitation that will allow them to anonymously vote once. The email will be sent right after the OGM. Please make sure to check your spam folder for emails from Surveymonkey.

The poll will stay open for 5 days so as to allow the greatest possible participation. A further email will be circulated a week after the OGM to inform you of the results.

Please attend the OGM. In case we don't reach the quorum we will have to call another OGM on a later date and postpone the elections as well.

If you want to participate in the OGM and vote and you haven't paid your dues for 2021 yet, please make sure to do so by June 25, 2021. All information in this regard is also available on our website:<>.

The link to the Zoom webinar will be shared with members in good standing with membership fees in a separate email after the cut off date for renewals mentioned above.

The GA will be included in an exciting two-day program of events and discussions we will announce with a separate message. Stay tuned...

All best,
Marco Armiero
President of the European Society for Environmental History
