The president and the two vice-presidents represent the Board in justice. The president has the signing right together with one vice-president. In case of a hindrance, which must not be justified, the president can be replaced by one of the vice-presidents.
The Board decides on all matters of the “European Forum of Psychomotricity” not reserved for the general assembly.
The principal missions are:

The EFP Board may call for ad hoc commissions.
The members of a commission elect one of them as president. These elections become effective with the approval of the General Assembly.
The main objectives of the commissions are mainly the accomplishment of the missions that were approved at the General Assembly and the elaboration of propositions for new missions. The commissions have no right of decision.
