The roles available include

 

Directors

ECBE currently has 2 vacancies on its Board of Directors. The Board is responsible for oversight of the organisation and, in particular, work conducted by the Executive. The Board meets up to 6 times a year and we are currently looking for candidates with the following experience:

  • A senior representative from business and industry (ideally from international and/or pan European company or organisation)
  • Current student in business, management or economics (from any cycle of study)

Board appointments, done by ECBE's Annual general Meeting (AGM), are for a period of 3 years and appointments may be renewed. However, candidates for the current vacancies will be coopted by the Board, meaning the first appointment period is until the next AGM.

Commissioners

ECBE is also seeking individuals to join our Board of Commissioners. Commissioners are responsible for making accreditation decisions based on reports produced by our expert teams following external review visits. Commissioners should be senior academic post holders with a strong track record in quality assurance and accreditation. Commissioners are appointed for an initial period of 3 years and appointments may be renewed. Commissioners are paid a fixed fee of between 200 and 500 Euros for each accreditation case that they consider.

Unpaid Invoices

The following flowchart explains the procedure followed by ECBE in case of unpaid invoices issued to Members.

ECBE settles these problems in 5 stages

Procedure Unpaid Invoices TimeLine

This chart can be downloaded here: Procedure Unpaid Invoices_TimeLine (793.41 KB)

  1. Stage 0: Invoice is still not due;
  2. Stage 1: Approx. 15 days after the due date of the invoice, a first email reminder is sent. The amount due is without additional charges and without delay interest.
  3. Stage 2: If no reactions and/or payment is received, a second email reminder is sent. The amount due is without additional charges and without delay interest.
  4. Stage 3: If still no reaction and/or payment is received, the BoD will send a first registered letter. The amount due is increased by 10% and a delay interest of 10% per year.
  5. Stage 4: If still no reaction and/or payment is received, the BoD will send a second and last registered letter. Membership will be suspended and legal action will start after another 15 days. This moment is also the start of the 90 days period prior to exclusion of the Member. If a Member is excluded, it will lose all accreditations granted by ECBE.
  6. Stage 5: Legal action is started. The amount due according to Stage 3 is increased with all legal costs made.

In all stages, except in Stage 5, ECBE is willing to negotiate payment in instalments if the Member cannot pay the full amount due instantly.

The (Annual) General Meeting (GM or AGM)

The AGM is the sovereign policy and decision-making body of ECBE. It is composed of all active Members of ECBE. The main responsibilities of the AGM, inter alia, are to:

  • Elect and dismiss the members of the Board of Directors
  • Elect and dismiss 2 members of the Committee of Appeal;
  • Approve ECBE’s annual budget;
  • Approve ECBE’s annual financial statements;
  • Give discharge to the members of the Board of Directors;
  • Receive, consider and approve the annual reports of Directors on the activities of ECBE, of the Committee of Appeal, the Director of Accreditation and the Chairperson of ECBE - President of ECBE.
  • Take note of the annual report of the Chairman of the Pool of Reviewers and the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners.
  • Following a decision of the Board of Directors, ratify the exclusion of Members by the Board of Directors;
  • Approve the dissolution of ECBE;
  • Take any decisions or make any recommendations to the Board of Directors that are necessary for the satisfactory functioning of ECBE;
  • Amend Statutes of ECBE.

ECBE has the following types of General meetings:

  • According to the traditions of ECBE, the Annual General Meeting is convoked every year in May. Having such a meeting once a year is mandatory. We combine the AGM with ECBE's Annual Conference: the total event takes 3 days. More information about the next AGM can be found here.
  • An Additional General Meeting can be organized whenever needed. Until today, this was done only once: on January 14th, 2019, such a meeting approved the new Statutes of the Agency.
  • An Extraordinary General Meeting is an additional one, in the presence of a notary. Such a meeting is necessary whenever Statutes are amended. Until today, this was done only once: on January 14th 2019.
