The members of Trans Europe Halles meet twice a year during TEH Meetings, and decisions are made at the General Assembly of each meeting. During the Spring meeting a formal General Assembly is held, during which final accounts are approved, a new Executive Committee is elected and the yearly budget is approved. Each member has one vote regardless of the size of the centre.
TEH’s Executive Committee is the governing and policy making body of the network. It consists of a minimum of five and a maximum of eight people, and is elected for two-year terms.
The members of the Executive Committee (2015-2017) are:
|Ada Arduini, Interzona (Verona, Italy) I have a degree in Foreign Languages and Literature, and since 1998 I haved worked as a professional literary translator from English. I started working with Interzona as a volunteer in 2003, doing a bit of everything. I became secretary general and then I was director of the centre for two years (2005-2007). Today, always as a volunteer, I help out with secretarial duties and I still coordinate volunteer work and am TEH delegate for my centre. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Michele Bee, Manifatture Knos (Lecce, Italy) When I set up Manifatture Knos with some friends and the spontaneous involvement of many people of my community, I had no idea about which direction to take. After six years of work, Manifatture Knos is still an “undecided place”, open to spontaneity and free invention. This experience nourishes my teaching of economical philosophy at University of Salento. Contact: email@example.com|
|Robert Blasko, Stanica (Zilina, Slovakia) Stanica has been part of the TEH family for several years. During that time, I led Stanica’s contribution to the project Engine Room Europe (2011-2015). TEH helped Stanica’s crew to professionally develop and to enter the international scene. Being part of TEH’s Executive Committee and contributing back to the network is my way to thank the network for its inspiration and support during the past years.
