AEF relies heavily on our Board of Advisors to provide expert evaluation of on-going projects and on the strategic planning of future activities. The Board of Advisors meets in person annually in New York City and virtually as needed.

Annual meetings have been realized so far at the Department of Music of the Graduate Center (2011), the Center for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies at Queens College (2012), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2013).
