The officers are elected by simple majority of members attending the annual general meeting. Nominations for election are made before the AGM.

About the AEJ
The AEJ is an independent network of journalists, writers and specialists active across Europe, a 
Europe-wide network of national sections with the goal of advancing knowledge and debate on European affairs and upholding media freedom. In the UK we host regular meetings for journalists providing a forum for open-minded exchanges with public figures of all backgrounds to promote informed debate on European and international affairs. Our lunchtime meetings are open to bona fide journalists and visiting members of other AEJ sections; an entry fee must be paid to cover the costs of food and drink and pre-registration is essential. Journalists, writers and specialists in European affairs may also apply to join the Association of European Journalists – please see here for more about the benefits of membership or contact the AEJ UK Secretary.
You can also follow us on our
Facebook page.
We are independent of any institutional or political group and are recognised by the Council of Europe, the OSCE and UNESCO.
