The Board of Directors is comprised of the Officers of the Association (Chair, Chair-Elect, 1st Vice Chair, 2nd Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, two At-Large seats, and the Chair (or designee) all active Committees and Councils.

Each Committee or Council will review the nominations from the general call, and recommend and recruit new members who they believe can best contribute to their respective group. Each nominated member is given thoughtful consideration.
