Officers are members of the Board of Trustees and serve on the Executive Committee (ExCom). The ExCom:

  • Serves as the administrative committee of the Board of Trustees (BOT), implements policy, and acts for the BOT between meetings of the board;
  • Serves as the strategic planning committee of the Board of Trustees;
  • Reviews and recommends annual operating plans and budgets to the Board of Trustees;
  • Selects the executive vice president/CEO and annually reviews the incumbent’s performance.


The Executive Committee meets quarterly, twice in conjunction with meetings of the Board of Trustees (in the spring and before the annual conference) and twice on its own (mid-winter and mid-summer), and holds monthly conference calls.

Vice presidents for communications, education, and government affairs also serve on the ExCom and were recently elected to serve the 2020 through 2021 terms.
