During the first EPATH conference in 2015, the interim board of directors was presented. This board had the task to set up EPATH as an organisation and to prepare the bylaws.

- Guy T’Sjoen: President & Director of the Scientific Division

- Annelou De Vries: Director of the Interest of Children and Adolescents
- Joz Motmans: Secretary – Treasurer & Director of the Policy Division
