The EULAR Standing Committees are set up to manage and perform the various activities of EULAR on behalf of the Executive Committee. Currently, eight standing committees are in place, covering the major areas of activity of EULAR. Standing committees provide a forum for specialists from all the European countries to meet and work together on specific projects. Projects are run by task forces of specialists in the field and overseen by the chairman of the relevant standing committee. The chairmen of the standing committees are ex-officio members of the EULAR Executive Committee.
Standing committee setup
The standing committees are headed by a chairperson and are composed of delegates representing each national member organisation. They may set up sub-committees or working groups to accomplish specific tasks. The standing committees may also co-opt additional members with specialised knowledge in their fields as the need may be.
