The Advisory Board has been formed to advise the organisers on ESSHC policy. It acts as a body that represents the long term interests of the conference and the participants that make it.
The board meets every two years at the conference and is informed about the organisation of the ESSHC by the organisers twice a year. Participants who want to voice suggestions can approach either the organisers or members of the Advisory Board.
