EHRA Young EP Ambassadors' selection

  • The EHRA Young EP Ambassadors are nominated every 2 years by the EP Working Group/National Cardiac Society President.
  • The EHRA Young EP committee may suggest the candidates for the position of the ambassador from the current national YEP members. However, the final decision belongs to the EP Working Group/National Cardiac Society President.
  • If EP Working Group/National Cardiac Society President does not nominate EHRA Young EP Ambassadors after 2 reminders, the chair of EHRA Young EP will select and nominate the Ambassador from current national members for countries with 3 or more members. In countries with less than 3 members, the ambassador’s position will remain vacant.
  • The EHRA Young EP Ambassadors must be an EHRA Member.
  • Sister societies (HRS, APHRS, LAHRS, etc.) will appoint official representatives who will act as EHRA Young EP Ambassadors for a given region.
