The ENETS By-laws according to Article 8, Paragraph (1):

"An Advisory Board shall advise and assist the Extended Executive Committee. The Advisory Board consists of up to fifty members, with no more than six members from one country; Article 4, Section 2 of the Society’s By-laws shall apply accordingly. The members of the Advisory Board shall be appointed by the Executive Committee for a period of three years. Re-election for one further term of three years is permissible.

In order to enable the Executive Committee to make annual appointments or re-appointments to the Advisory Board in the future, the Executive Committee shall appoint, in 2016 and 2017 respectively, after having been chosen by lottery, one third of the total of Advisory Board members to be up for re-election, the remaining third being up for re-election in 2018.

The appointments must reflect a balanced representation of all disciplines engaged in the field of NET diseases and must embrace both clinicians and researchers; up to two nurses, appointed by the ENETS nurse group, and two patient advocates may also be appointed. Members of the Executive Committee may not concurrently serve as members of the Advisory Board. The members of the Advisory Board shall elect a Speaker of the Advisory Board from among their ranks."
