Role of Representative Board members
The newly elected Representative Board should expect to meet immediately after the General Assembly meeting in Glasgow on 15 November 2014 and in this meeting the President and Treasurer will be elected.

The Representative Board will normally meet twice a year for a two half-day meeting (starting and ending lunchtime) in Amsterdam. During these meetings activities and financial reports will be discussed and the Representative Board will serve as a think tank and advocate for future developments of ELIA. Representative Board members will be invited to take part in projects, steering groups and platform discussions.
Among the duties of Representative Board members is the promotion of ELIA by organising regional meetings (with assistance of ELIA) in order to better involve members, to provide information on current developments in higher arts education in Europe and to recruit new members.

The Executive Group will be formed from members of the Representative Board. The Executive Group normally meets three times a year in addition to Representative Board meetings. The Executive Group progresses and monitors the operational plan and ensures the financial management of the organisation.

Role of the ELIA President
The President acts as an advocate, represents the organisation and has overall responsibility for action taken in and by the organisation. The President selects the Executive Group, including Vice President(s) and reports to the Executive Group and on behalf of the Executive Group to the Representative Board and the General Assembly
The President provides leadership and guidance to meetings and ensures a democratic forum.
The President works closely with the Executive Director on the operations of the organisation and on the preparation of the General Assembly, Representative Board and Executive Group meetings.
The President is elected for a period of two years and can be re-elected once.

Role of the ELIA Treasurer
The Treasurer monitors the budget of ELIA, presents management accounts to the Executive Group for approval and advises on financial activities
The Treasurer presents audited annual accounts to the Executive Group, to the Representative Board for approval and to the General Assembly to be received and works closely with the Executive Director in the preparation of the financial reports.

Representative Board members and Executive Group members are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs at all such meetings.
