EPS Members

We consider all European Python users and EuroPython attendees as having a say in the workings of the EPS, since we regard the EPS as representation of the EuroPython attendees and want to serve the European Python community in the best way possible.

Initially, the EPS was focused on organizing the EuroPython conference, working hard to make every single EuroPython conference a professional, high quality and fun event.

Since 2016, we have broadened the focus to be able to support the European Python community in general.

If you have suggestions for enhancements, changes or anything we could do to make EuroPython an even better event, or better support Python in Europe, please contact us.

EPS Membership

We are constantly aiming at increasing our membership size to make sure that we can fulfill our intention to represent the EuroPython attendees.

Please see our membership roster page for a list of our current members:

EuroPython Society Membership Roster

Membership is free and our bylaws only require you to have attended a EuroPython conference or are registered as attendee for the next edition.

If you would like to have a say in the organization, or simply show your support by being a society member, please consider signing up.

Note that EPS membership is not required to participate in one of our EuroPython Workgroups, but we would still like to encourage workgroup members to sign up.

Sign up as EPS Member

Our bylaws do require members to be voted in by the board and because this hasn’t been done in the past, the new board is working towards getting all EuroPython attendees who want to have official voting rights in the EPS General Assembly signed up as EPS members.

To sign up as member, please enter your details in our EuroPython Society Membership Application form,

The board will collect these application and then vote on them in batches during the year and in time for the next general assembly at the conference, so that you can also officially participate in the voting process.

Once you are voted in, we will sign you up to the EuroPython members mailing list and send you a welcome email.
