The sub-committees represent the main domains of interest for EACTA members. The sub-committees will contribute to the scientific programme of the Annual Meetings, and may propose educational and research programmes, guidelines, recommendations, surveys or collaboration. Each sub-committee will be chaired by an EACTA member in good standing for a three-year term of office. The office is renewable for one additional, consecutive three-year term. Chairpersons will be proposed to the RC by the DB on the basis of a well-known involvement in the field of the sub-committee and they will be responsible for communication with the DB. Suggestions, questions or any requests from the sub-committees will be addressed at each DB meeting (September, January, June). Chairpersons will provide the DB and RC with an annual written report of the sub- committee's activities over the previous year which is to be submitted one-month before the DB meeting held at the time of the Annual Meeting.
Sub-committees are open to any EACTA member, and will be constituted with no more than two members from the same country. Should more than two members from the same country wish to serve on the sub-committee then the RC member for that country will adjudicate who will serve. Members may not serve on more than two sub-committees.
