The SEAMEO Centres Governing Board Meetings (GBMs) are important milestones in SEAMEO Centres as these serve as platform for Ministries of Education (MOEs) and relevant agencies to give their inputs and advices on the relevance and responsiveness of the Centre programmes, projects, and initiatives. GBMs also afford the SEAMEO Centres the opportunity to update the Board Members on the accomplishments and status of implementation of Centres’ projects and programmes.

This year, due to travel restrictions imposed by countries in Southeast Asia, all GBMs were done online using various online meeting applications such as Zoom and WebEx. This is a historic first as previously, all GBMs were done face-to-face. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, SEAMEO Centres and Network were still able to implement projects and programmes through the use of innovative technologies and alternative learning modalities to ensure that no learner is left behind.
