The board of directors is composed of 15 elected directors representing perspectives agreed on by the board, five appointed directors, officers whose terms as directors have otherwise expired and the CEO, who shall serve ex-officio as a non-voting member.
Board of directors elections occur annually. Elected directors serve 3-year terms and may serve up to two terms. Appointed directors serve 2-year terms and may serve up to two terms consecutively. Of the officers, the chair, chair-elect and immediate past chair each serve 1-year terms that total 3 years of leadership. The treasurer and secretary serve 2-year terms.
