The ISEA International foundation board is the governing body of ISEA. The primary role of the Board is to oversee the continuation of the annual symposia, build and maintain a comprehensive symposium archive. The Board meets monthly via Skype and holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM) at each symposium, where it updates the public activities and invites organisations bidding for future symposia to present their proposal.
