Role of the Board
IAPO's strategy and direction is supervised by the Governing Board. This Board comprises of elected representatives from our full and associate member organizations.
Many of our Governing Board are patients themselves or are patient representatives such as a parent or carer. All have living and working relationships with patients through their organizations.
Our Board has two face-to-face meetings each year and active engagement through teleconferences throughout the year.
