The governing body of the Association is the Board of Directors, which is responsible for establishing broad policies and for the general conduct of the affairs of the Association. The Board provides oversight and guidance for the future direction of the Association and directs the work of NASFAA's committees.
Following a Board-approved transition period ending in 2014-15, there will be 21 members of the Board of Directors: Three officers (the National Chair, Chair-Elect, and Immediate Past National Chair) who serve one-year terms; 6 Representatives-at-Large who serve two-year terms; 6 Regional Representatives who serve one-year terms; the Treasurer, who serves a one-year term; three (3) non-voting Commission Directors who serve one-year terms; the President of the Association, who serves on the Board in a non-voting capacity; and the Secretary to the Board, who is selected by the president and also serves in a non-voting capacity.
One of our greatest resources is our volunteer leadership. Every year, over 150 members volunteer their expertise, influencing the development of NASFAA programs, products, and services. These volunteers carry out the goals of the Association's Strategic Long Range Plan and serve as authors, speakers, presenters, and more. Volunteers serve as committee chairs and members. Volunteers are typically employees of NASFAA member institutions, usually with committee or leadership experience at the state and regional levels, who are willing to share new ideas, demonstrate strategic and visionary thinking, and desire to contribute to the greater good of NASFAA.
