The board currently consists of the chairperson and seven board members from various universities, research institutes, companies, or other relevant organizations in Sweden. Every third year, at the SNSS General Annual Meeting, the members are given the opportunity to propose and vote for new members of the board. The board elects among its members a chairperson, vice chairperson and a secretary.
There are no time limits on how long one can be a member of the board, but all members are elected every third year. The current board was elected at the annual SNSS meeting in May 2020.
