Meet the Directors
The Board of Directors (BoD) is comprised of members of HQAI. The Board governs the organisation and is responsible of setting the strategic direction for the Secretariat. Other responsibilities are the insurance that the statutes are respected and supporting HQAI in achieving its objectives, mission and vision whilst publicly representing the organisation.
The President, Vice-President and Treasurer form the Executive Committee with the responsibility to facilitate the activities of the Board.
