 **Proposal for future administrative structure of the EPD. Richard Bradshaw.** **Proposal for future administrative structure of the EPD. Richard Bradshaw.**
-I propose that the working group structure continues, but as many of the contributors have no permanent positions there should be a group of co-ordinators,​ nominated and elected for fixed terms, who try and sort out finances and represent the EPD to the outside world. I suggest three people would be sufficient for this role. They oversee activities and encourage working groups to be active. The main role of the working groups is to support the data-base manager Michelle Leydet. This would be a far cheaper and slimmer organisation than we had before (Executive Committee and Advisory Board), but in the absence of secure funding this is practical. It would be a little more formal (open elections etc.) than the present interim arrangement. Elections could be web-based like the INQUA palaeo committee. A key role of the co-ordinators would be to raise funds for meetings and other EPD activities so it would be advatageous ​for these people to have access to research funds.+I propose that the working group structure continues, but as many of the contributors have no permanent positions there should be a group of co-ordinators,​ nominated and elected for fixed terms, who try and sort out finances and represent the EPD to the outside world.
