BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Elected by the Chapter membership and its Nominating Committee each year, the Board of Directors is a diverse group of practitioners and allied professionals that brings a wealth of experience to the functioning of the Chapter. The Board meets monthly, with supplemental meetings and event commitments dependent on the position to which an individual is elected. View the Board position descriptions here.
