Governance

NCSEA is governed by a board of directors which consists of 15 elected or appointed directors with staggered terms, six officers who are members of the Executive Committee, an International Commissioner, and an elected representative of the NCSEA Past Presidents.  In addition, several allied, partner organizations may appoint representatives to attend Board meetings.   A call for nominations is done in February or March of every year and an election of directors is held on-line every May.  New directors are installed after the NCSEA Annual conference in August.  The Board of Directors elects its officers and the International Commissioner at the spring board meeting.  The new officers are also installed after the NCSEA Annual Conference.
