Who we are
ESF is led by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. Currently, nine individuals sit on the board. Four directors are scholars at universities in Canada and the U.S. All share a deep interest in issues concerning world language problems, language policy and planning, interlinguistics, Esperanto, linguistic technologies and global education, among others. Director profiles, including contact information, can be found in this section.
The full board meets approximately once a month via teleconference to review ongoing programs, new initiatives and to oversee operations. The ESF board also meets for an annual strategic planning session at least once a year. In 2008, the board established an Operations Committee, comprised of a core group of Board members and the Foundation's Administrative Director, to review the business affairs of the organization on a weekly basis. The Operations Committee also reviews all submitted proposals and forwards those that match our interests and requirements to the full board for final consideration.
