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 as ex officio members of the Board.  A call for nominations is done in February or March of every year and an election of directors is held on-line every June.  The Board of Directors elects its officers and the International Commissioner at the spring board meeting.  Both officers and Board members take office September 1.

Our Pledge to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

NCSEA is committed to educating and building a community that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our commitment extends to both the people who work in child support programs and the families served by those programs. We will work towards diverse representation of our full membership in leadership positions. We will center discussions of diversity, equity, and inclusiveness in our conferences, in addressing laws and regulations affecting child support, and in our communications with our members and the larger public. We value the experiences of the parents and families we serve and will listen to and learn from them. To achieve our shared goal of providing person-centered child support services, we will address inequities, especially related to race, that drive many disparate outcomes and experiences.
