Governance

Elected by and from the membership, the Board of Directors holds ultimate responsibility for the conduct of the organization. As a governing board, it typically sets the organization’s strategic direction and selects, evaluates, and assists the Executive Director, who manages regular operations. The membership elects new Directors each fall.
