HUART’s board is its decision-making body. It includes the Chairperson, 11 members, and their personal vice members.

Board members are elected for a two-year term at the board’s autumn meeting, which is organised annually in November or December. All HUART members are welcome at the autumn meeting. We encourage everyone who is interested in promoting members’ interests to apply to join the board!

The board convenes at the beginning of the year to elect two Vice-Chairpersons, Secretary, Treasurer, and a Communications Officer.
