The elections through which the executive board is constituted are held every two years.
The group is open to anyone interested in occupational science in Europe – practitioners, academics, students.
The group hosts a website to hold information links and postings that are of interest to occupational scientists and organises a conference event in Europe every 2 years.
The Executive Board works to fulfil these aims together with the membership. The board has the following officers: Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary, and Treasurer, and the chairpersons of three committees: Website/Social Media Committee, Conference Committee and Research Committee. Positions are allocated by mutual agreement between the board members.
Board membership is for 4 years with the possibility of re-election for a further 2 years. Meetings are normally held via Skype.
We actively encourage board members from all regions of Europe (North, South, East and West), that at least one member is from a discipline other than occupational therapy and that at least one member is a student.
All posts are voluntary and meetings are usually held via Skype
As a novelty, google polls were used in last elections (December 2017). OSE used this system for the first time to democratize as much as possible the process.
