The current Steering  Committee for the International Network for School Attendance (INSA) has members from four countries. These four members were instrumental in establishing the Lorentz Workshop which led to the formation of INSA (see the ‘History’ of INSA). David Heyne (Netherlands) and Carolyn Gentle-Genitty (USA) are co-chairpersons for the Steering Committee in 2018-2019. Malin Gren Landell (Sweden) and Glenn Melvin (Australia) will serve as co-chairpersons following the INSA Conference in October 2019 (see ‘INSA Conference’). The Steering Committee consults with the 21 founding members of INSA on matters of its mission, methods, and progression.
