Although the IAB is not directly elected, any SIGFSM member can contact a board member or the elected officers in order to propose a new IAB member. We would like to see that the board has representatives for different continents, countries, FSM schools and other interests felt in the field. Obviously, this goal is not yet fully achieved. Please help improve the representativeness of the board!

An official Business Meeting is needed when we have higly controversial or constitutional matters to be discussed. The dates of these meetings are separately announced to the SIGFSM members by email or in the home page of an endorsed workshop or conference.
