About the Board

ADAA’s Board of Directors, comprised of volunteers, oversees the long-term strategic plan for ADAA, enabling the organization to advance its mission, vision, and strategic objectives. The Board of Directors actively helps guide, support, and oversee ADAA’s activities — setting long-term goals and priorities for the Association and monitoring ADAA’s strategic direction and fiscal health.

ADAA’s leadership donates their time and expertise to help with programming for both ADAA’s professional membership and the public.  ADAA’s leadership embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as a core value for all members, staff, and volunteers and is committed to ensuring that all of ADAA’s programming supports cultural equity.  

ADAA is governed by Bylaws, most recently updated in 2018. The Bylaws allow for not  less than 13 and not more than 17 ADAA Board members, and up to five honorary Board Members. Board members can serve up to three two- year terms. The Bylaws detail the Board selection processes. All individual ADAA board members provide financial support to the ADAA on an annual basis.

The Executive Committee (EC)  is comprised of the Board Chair, the President Elect, a Treasurer, the Past President, and a Secretary.

All EC members are members of the current ADAA Board and are elected by the Board. The President presides over all meetings of the board.
