ELITA – the European Liver and Intestine Transplant Association – would like to announce a call for nominations for five new Board members. The new ELITA Board Members will hold office for four years (2023-2027), starting at the ESOT Congress, September 2023.
All ESOT/ELITA affiliates are eligible to submit their applications for the positions. You may nominate yourself or a colleague.
The expectation is that successful candidates will become actively involved in the Association by attending Board meetings, educational events (courses), and the annual meetings. Please note that Board members act as volunteers and thus serve without compensation.
The ELITA Board is strongly committed to principles of diversity and inclusion and promotes balance in geographic and professional representation. Members of traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
ELITA provides a forum for those working in the field of liver and intestinal transplantation to exchange scientific information and views related primarily to providing the best service for patients in Europe requiring liver transplantation. Thus science, training, organ sharing and distribution, co-operative research projects, especially of clinical nature and the European Liver Transplant Registry would be of concern. For more information about ELITA and its activities, please visit the ELITA webpage.
