About the main board

The AObThe board of directors consists of twenty people in total. Five of them, the daily management, are in paid employment. The other fifteen chief executives are unsalaried and come from different regions and education sectors. They work a maximum of two days before the AOb besides work at school. The AOb pays the school to arrange replacement. We call this 'on a facility basis'.

Chief executives provide direction and guidance to the AOb and think along about terms of employment and education policy. They also monitor the union's progress. Board members must be well informed about what is going on in education, be strategically oriented and have knowledge of educational content.
