EuroCloud Goals

  • To build a pan European network organized in two tiers with a national level (France, Espagna, England, Belgique, etc.)  and a European level. The national level focuses on local topics and the European level on European topics,under the EuroCloud brand (or another if appropriate in a national setting). Only companies who have an interest in Cloud Computing and participate in the Cloud ecosystem can be members of the network.
  • Build relationships with the European authorities (Commission and Parliament) to help recognise the Cloud Computing industry as the future of IT in Europe and to promote a stimulating environment for development and growth of the industry.
  • Promote business relationships between members throughout Europe and internationally with counterparts such as SIIA.
  • Promote technological relationships between members throughout Europe and internationally.

Board Membership

Next to our Members, Board Members are EuroCloud UK's greatest assets and without them EuroCloud UK could not continue.  Appointment to the Board is a prestigious achievement, it is a recognition by one's peers of attainment of influence, experience and rank in the UK Cloud industry, an expression of belief by one's peers in the contribution an individual can make to the growth, reputation and influence of EuroCloud and an invitation to join a unique, exclusive and committed group by whose influence the Cloud Industry in Britain and Europe is going to evolve for the greater benefit of all participants.

A Board Member has legal responsibilities and liabilities, responsibilities to his colleagues and the membership, and responsibilities to the EuroCloud ideal and mission.  In return a Board Member receives no payment and, of course, does not expect thanks from those whose interests he serves.

At each Annual General Meeting one third of the serving Board must retire and they may stand for re-election, but at this time any member may propose an individual to sit on the Board and there are always additional vacancies caused by changes in corporate and personal circumstances.

So we want and we encourage our members to consider seeking election to the Board.  It is a job that takes some effort and time and should not be pursued just to ornament a CV already littered with achievements.  To define the task, we have a page showing the present Job Description and here is How To Apply and The Process for Election of Board Members.

If you are interested and want to talk through what is involved - call the Secretary General, he will be happy to explain and encourage you to apply.     

Staff

EuroCloud UK is expanding its operations and we occasionally have opportunities to work for us part-time or on a project basis. See our jobs page for details of any current vacancies along with details of how to apply.
