More than 50% of the ECS-membership consists of students. Therefore, since 1996, a new member was elected into the ECS-council, the Student Representative, who represents the students of the Society. The student member on the Council has the status of a full member, not confined to commenting on student issues. Every other year a new Student Representative can be elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) during the ECS conferences, by the students attending the conference.
For the next two years this post is filled by Yaly Mevorach.
