The Society’s governing body is the Council. Councillors are elected representatives from each European country that has more than 10 members. Non-European countries with more than 20 representatives can elect a Councillor in a observer capacity. Council meets twice a year: at the ESVS annual meeting and in connection with the Charing Cross meeting in London.
The role and responsibilities of ESVS Councillors include:
- Being an ambassador and source of information about vascular surgery in their country, maintaining the link between their National Society and the ESVS.
- Active promotion of the society and working towards increasing ESVS membership in their country.
- Active participation in meetings and ESVS exercises through reporting.
- Organisation and chairing of ESVS joint sessions at their National Society meetings.
