Board of Directors

SCEA’s governing body is the Board of Directors, comprised of up to seven elected members.

This positive group of people spans a broad cross-section of expertise, skills and personalities and provides sound, strategic guidance. We have several sub-committees and our governance structure encourages best practice in educational and financial management.

Board members are elected at the Annual General Meeting of the Association for a term of up to three years.
