National Session Vienna 2022 Feedback Report

Since last year, Feedback Reports have been created for all our academic events. They contain in-depth feedback from participants and are supposed to give a broad view of how the participants took to the events. This shall provide valuable insights to future Organising Teams and help continuously improve our sessions’ quality. You can now find the Feedback Report for the National Session Vienna 2022 in the aforementioned folder.

To increase accessibility to all of our reports, we compile Feedback Reports, Selection Reports, PBM Reports, General Assembly Protocols and other similar documents in a publicly accessible folder within the EYP AT Shared Drive that everyone with an @eyp.at email address has regular access to.

Europa Club Live – Spezial: “15 years of EU membership of Bulgaria and Romania – taking stock” | 25 May

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the EU membership of Bulgaria and Romania – a good time to take stock and look ahead. How have these two countries developed since 2007? What is their contribution to European integration? And what consequences does Putin’s war in Ukraine have for Bulgaria and Romania, as well as for the entire European integration process?
These and other questions will be discussed in the Europa Club Live today at 10:00–13:00 with country experts from Austria, Bulgaria and Romania at the House of the European Union, Wipplingerstraße 35, Vienna. The event will be live-streamed on YouTube.

EYP Austria goes Pride

EYP Austria encourages its members to join the upcoming celebrations and demonstrations supporting LGBTQIA+ rights. 

In this spirit, Selina Schweng will be the EYP Austria contact person for the Vienna Pride Parade on 11 June, whilst you can approach L Zöhrer regarding the Christopher Street Day in Graz on 2 July. If you want to come but don’t know with whom to go or where to be, you can reach out to Selina (+43 676 889697777) and/or L. We’re very grateful to the two of them for enabling active citizenship!

If you’re interested in being a contact person for Pride celebrations in a different city than Vienna or Graz, please reach out to Philipp Leindl (+43 6645229286), who is responsible for Active Citizenship in EYP Austria.

Stay loud and proud!

Physical Board Meeting #1 2022/23

Based on insights of PBM#5, the current Board has decided to propose a nonbinding recommendation for the dates of the first Physical Board Meeting of the new Board that will be elected at the upcoming General Assembly.

Taking the availabilities of the current Board Members for transition modules into consideration, and in an attempt to promote a quick take-over and kick-off of the new Board period, the current Board is suggesting the weekend of 24–26 June. We encourage Board Member candidates to make time for a Physical Board Meeting on these dates whilst again stressing that this is a nonbinding recommendation and not a requirement for running for the Board.

EYP Austria General Assembly 2022 | 12 June

Please be reminded that our General Assembly 2022 is taking place at America HouseVienna at Friedrich-Schmidt-Platz 2, 1010 Vienna on Sunday, 12 June, from 13:00 CEST onwards (admission starts at 12:30). Big thanks to the American Embassy for hosting us! 

You can find all documents relevant to the General Assembly compiled in this folder. Here are the most important ones:

  • Notice of Date, including information on how to transfer your vote if you can’t come
  • Election Information, outlining the positions that will be elected and the process leading up to the elections (this year we are calling for 8 Board Members, introducing a new Board position for IT & Data)
  • Manifesto Template for those interested in running for a position
  • Agenda containing the programme

Since the General Assembly will include the elections for Board Members, Advisory Board Members and Auditors for the 2022/23 term and thereby have a significant impact on the organisation for the upcoming year, we encourage all members to check that they are still extraordinary members with voting rights (i.e. paying the annual membership fee) and participate in our organisational democracy! If you aren’t an extraordinary member yet, you can easily become one by following the steps on our website.

If you can’t make it to the event, you have the opportunity to transfer your vote until Saturday, 11 June, to someone who can come. For this, see further information in the Notice of Date and the Proxy Statement document. 

Those interested in running for elections can still send their manifestos to the Electoral Commission at electoralcommission2022@eyp.at until Friday, 3 June, 23:59 CEST
If you intend to come to the General Assembly, please indicate so using our Google Form! Additionally, you can add the event on Facebook.

EYP Austria Contact Form

We would like to remind you of the chance to send anonymous messages to the Board of EYP Austria, which can be about feedback, new ideas, or anything you want to communicate to us. Whether you don’t know which Board Member would be best to approach for a situation, you don’t know any of the Board Members, or you’re uncomfortable with reaching out to us personally, the EYP Austria Contact Form can serve as a way to get your message out to us.

New submissions to the form will immediately get forwarded to the board, which will treat them seriously and with care. Please note that if you don’t leave any contact information behind, we will not be able to get back to you personally, though we will still publicly react to relevant messages.

Of course, you can still approach the Board Members directly or through info@eyp.at (President) and board@eyp.at (all Board Members) about any of your concerns. We’re always glad to interact with our members! You can find our individual contact information on our website.
