The European Christian Political Movement (ECPM) is the only European political party which explicitly works on promoting Christian values in politics. Unlike other European parties, the ECPM focuses on the human being in its relationship to God, other people and the creation. We see this relational thinking as the heart of Christian-democracy. We believe we exist to give voice and elevate people so they are seen and heard. We empower them with knowledge, resources and connections so that they can effectively engage their communities and parliaments and have an impact.
More information about ECPM can be found at https://ecpm.info/
ECPM is looking for a new board member to represent the organization. The ECPM board is the core of our organization. Board members represent the party in meetings, media and in legal matters whenever the President is unavailable. Furthermore, the ECPM Board is the supreme body of the organization and makes decisions by majority vote. Board members can only be appointed (or dismissed) by the General Assembly of ECPM.
The day-to-day affairs of ECPM are delegated to the General Director who reports to the board.
The function of board member is part-time and unpaid.
ECPM members and associates are invited to put forward candidates for this vacancy. The deadline for applications is 16 December 2022 at 12.00 pm CET.
