What does the EPS Board do ?

The EPS board runs the day-to-day business of the EuroPython Society,
including running the EuroPython conference events. It is allowed to
enter contracts for the society and handle any issues that have not
been otherwise regulated in the bylaws or by the General
Assembly. Most business is handled by email on the board mailing list
or the board’s Telegram group, board meetings are usually run as
conference calls.

It is important to note that the EPS board is an active board,
i.e. the board members are expected to put in a significant amount of
time and effort towards the goals of the EPS and for running the
EuroPython conference. This usually means at least 100-200h work over
a period of one year, with most of this being needed in the last six
months before the conference. Many board members put in even more work
to make sure that the EuroPython conferences become a success.

Board members are generally expected to take on leadership roles
within the EuroPython Workgroups.
