Board of Trustees is composed by the President, and the two Financial Auditors, whose role is to supervise the operations of the Board of Directors, ensuring that such operations do not get into conflict with the interests of the membership at large and does not violate the common law, the legal provisions and the provisions in the articles of association. Here the current BoT composition:http://www.vph-institute.org/board-of-trustees.html
