Board of Directors

The NACADA Board of Directors is the official governing body of the Association and has primary responsibility for the strategic plan for the Association and the allocation of resources. The Board consists of the President, Vice President, seven additional Directors as voting members, and the Executive Director who serves ex officio (non-voting). The Board of Directors is elected by the membership from a slate of eligible candidates presented by the Nominations and Elections Committee; Board members serve staggered three year terms. A President and Vice President are elected each year from the continuing members of the Board.
