The Role of the EYAB
The main objectives for the EEMUA Early Years Advisory Board (EYAB) are to engage existing early years engineers, who are defined as individuals who have completed an Apprenticeship or Degree within the last five years. They must be actively working for an EEMUA Member or Associate company.
The EYAB will devise their own strategy and this is distributed to all representatives in January after discussions at the November meeting.
Everyone gets to have a say on the future goals of the EYAB .
- Engage Early Years Engineers or new starters
- Inform and engage prospective members/wider public
- Report and make recommendations to the EEMUA Council as may be necessary
- Consider such matters as directed by the EEMUA Board and Council
- Have input into the programme development for and participate in the biennial EEMUA Conference
- Ensure that the decisions taken, and activities undertaken, by the EYAB are in the best interests of early years engineers
- Support strategies and activities to attract and engage colleagues to access EEMUA resources and get involved in EEMUA activities
- Advise the Executive, EEMUA Board, EEMUA Council and other panels, committees and forums of the Association on early years members issues.
How often do the EYAB meet?
The EYAB will meet four times a year, with meetings taking place in February, May, August, and November. At least one of the meetings will be held in-person at a location agreed upon by the EYAB.
In between each meeting it is hoped representatives will help complete tasks set and contribute to discussions.
The EYAB will report to the EEMUA Board.
