The purpose of this board is to set the strategic directions of ARELEN, including the vision, purpose and activities of ARELEN. It is not concerned with the actual operation of the network for which the steering committee is in charge. The GAB will normally convene once a year to monitor ARELEN progress and to steer the strategic development. This meeting could take place virtually or possibly in conjunction with the Association of Arab Universities’ conference.
