Board of Directors

The Board is composed of ten volunteer members. Nine are elected by the Society from its membership and the treasurer is appointed by the Board. Board members serve three-year terms. Three new members are elected each year. You will see that recent unprecedented times called for some term limit extensions but are returning to normal.
