ESPO
ANNUAL REPORT 2006-2007

 

7. ESPO membership and structure

ESPO membership consists of the port authorities, port administrations and port associations of the seaports of the European Union. The organisation is furthermore open to observer members from countries neighbouring the EU.

The membership structure is organised on national level and finds its reflection in the General Assembly of the organisation where each EU member country has three official delegates (and in some instance official proxies or alternates) with voting right. Non-EU countries have one observer delegate each.

The General Assembly sets the overall policy of the organisation and meets twice a year. It elects the Chairman and two Vice-Chairmen of ESPO. For the period 2007-2008 ESPO is chaired by Giuliano Gallanti (Italy), assisted by Vice-Chairmen Maria Nygren (Sweden) and Victor Schoenmakers (Netherlands).

The General Assembly mandates the daily policy-making of the organisation to the Executive Committee which consists of one representative per EU member country and a number of observers. It meets about five times a year.

A series of Technical Committees provide technical recommendations to the Executive Committee on specific subjects which fall within their scope of competence. Currently four committees exist, dealing with transport, marine, environment and statistics. In addition, the Marine Committee has a specific expert group on port security under its umbrella.

Finally, the ESPO Secretariat is responsible for the overall coordination of the organisationís activities, including policy advice, communication, representation and administrative management. The Secretariat is based in Brussels and consists of Patrick Verhoeven (Secretary General), Lieselot Marinus and Roel Hoenders (Policy Advisors), Cécile Overlau (Office Manager and PA) and Jeanette Voosen (Consulting Accountant).
