About Us


The Association is governed by a Board of Directors composed solely of Association Members. The Board is elected by the full membership to serve five-year terms.  Directors appointed as Officers and Members-At-Large serve on the Board’s Executive Committee. Officers traditionally serve two-year terms.

Board Members are assigned by the President and CEO to serve on committees focused on specific functions of the organization. The Association’s Strategic Directions Committee plays a key role in working with the Executive Committee to develop recommendations and objectives for consideration by the Board to guide the Association.

Effective leadership provided by the Executive Committee and Board of Directors has facilitated the rapid expansion in recent years of the Association’s educational programs; services for Members, Life Partners and Friends; and public outreach in both the United States and Canada.
