Board & committees

Board of Trustees

The 12 members of the Board of Trustees include the four Officers of the Society (President, President-elect, Treasurer and Secretary). The President, President-elect and six Trustees are elected by the membership; three Trustees are appointed to add under-represented perspectives and/or specific expertise to the Board. The elected members are elected to 2-year terms of office by the membership during the AGM held during the International Headache Congress, automatically renewable for a second 2-year term. Any standard member of the Society may be nominated to join the Board of Trustees. Additional Trustees can be Co-opted by the Board to serve a 2-year term.

Standing Committees and Special Interest Groups

The Society's 20 Standing Committees and Special Interest Groups each have a specific role and advise the Board of Trustees on particular aspects of the business and/or functions of the Society. Each has a Chairman appointed by the Board of Trustees who must be a member of the Society. There are standing and ad-hoc Standing Committees. Both have prescribed areas of responsibility, standing committees remaining permanently in place with continuous activities or functions, ad-hoc being reconstituted from time to time to carry out particular initiatives. The Linguistic Special Interest Groups have more general responsibility for promoting the Society's objectives amongst those whose first language is not English. Click on the individual Committees in the menu below for details of each Committee's aims and activities together with the names and contact details of the Chairmen and members.

Select individual committees from the drop-down menu for remit, members and activitites.

Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is comprised of the Chairmen of the Standing Committees and Special Interest Groups and the elected representatives of member National Societies. The Advisory Council meets annually to report their activities and give advice to the Board of Trustees. 

Task Forces

The Board of Trustees and Standing Committees can create Task Forces as required to undertake specific one-off time-limited activities.

Mission and Aims

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate, inspire, and empower female IHS members  with the core values, attitudes and skills that are the foundation of quality leadership, and to ensure that headache research is done taking into consideration both males and females.

Our Vision

Our vision is to do this at a global level in the International Headache Society creating ways of interacting with all of its members to give opportunities to everyone and ensure that research is equally done in males and females following the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), which we believe will also empower our society.

Our Goals

  • To create opportunities for women involved in IHS to observe, interact with and learn from outstanding established leaders
  • To facilitate the process of developing philosophies and individualized plans for women to access leadership roles
  • To facilitate the IHS to work in the principles of RRI and through this to give opportunities to women to ensure that research is done taking into consideration both women and men, especially considering that headache is a brain disorder with a high prevalence in women
