Elections to the Executive Committee (EC) of the Slovak Chamber of English Teachers are held every 3 years. The EC consists of 5 members, one of whom is chosen by the others to be Chair. The responsibilities of the every-day running of the Chamber are divided among the members of the EC based on their strengths and weaknesses, and mutual agreement. Positions on the EC are unpaid and strictly volunteer.
Due to a lack of candidates, the current EC was approved to continue on for another year at the Annual General Meeting of SKA members at the September 2017 conference in Nitra.
