Call for New EPDC Member - Closing Date 27th April

Dear EMWA member,

I am sorry to report that Alison Rapley will be standing down from the EMWA Professional Development Committee (EPDC) in May because of other commitments. The committee is very sorry to lose her: she has made a huge contribution, not only as a workshop mentor but also to our other work, including scheduling workshop programmes for conferences.

We are looking for a new EPDC member to support our work on the workshops for the EMWA Professional Development Programme (EPDP). As an EPDC member you would have an interesting and rewarding role that underpins a core part of EMWA’s work and supports other EMWA members as they develop training for their colleagues.

To be eligible to join the EPDC you should fulfil all of the following criteria:

  • be a voting member of EMWA
  • be an EPDP workshop leader listed in the current EPDP brochure who has run at least 3 EPDP workshops
  • have attended at least 1 annual spring conference in the last 3 years.

To ensure we have a broad range of experience and expertise on the EPDC, we are particularly keen to recruit someone who has experience in a pharmaceutical company or CRO.

There is more information about the role in the attached document. I would be very happy to answer any questions or talk more about what is involved – you can contact me at

If you would like to express an interest in joining the EPDC, please complete this form and send it to the EMWA Head Office ( by Monday 27 April 2020.

The EPDC terms of reference from EMWA Rules of the Association can be viewed here.

Best wishes

Marian Hodges
EMWA Education Officer
