Board of Directors of the Foundation Voir et Entendre

Board of Directors

Article Index


The Board of Directors is the collegial instrument in charge of all questions concerning the running of the Foundation as well as finding solutions through deliberations. In order to achieve this, the Board can proceed with any controls and checks it considers necessary.

The Board elects a president, a treasurer and can require the assistance of other committees to help it manage projects under taken by the Foundation.

The Board meets at least twice a year, but also as often as the Foundation requires.

The Board must:

  • approve the Foundation's development strategy and ensure its accomplishment;
  • reach decisions concerning different conventions agreed with the founders, the partners and doctorate entities;
  • make decisions concerning the annual general orientations and the Foundation's annual action program;
  • vote the budget and its modifications;
  • adopt the activity report concerning the Foundation's scientific, moral and financial situation;
  • discuss and approve the yearly accounts;
  • nominate one or more auditors;
  • put into place the rules and regulations;
  • decide the general conditions for recruitment and payment of all the Foundation staff.
