Chapter Leadership

There are various leadership roles that run and maintain the Chapter. Some leadership roles serve on the Board of Directors while others focus on the leadership of certain activities/committees that report in to the Board.

Non-board leadership positions may have oversight of a specific committee or be the supporting leader to a committee that is led by a Board member. These positions would report in to the Board and often serve in the succession planning of future Board members. There are no term limits for these positions.

The Board of Directors serve as the governing body of the Chapter and include leaders of Core Leadership Areas and additional support positions that jointly oversee the activities of the Chapter. Board members take part in the strategic planning for the Chapter and provide tactical execution of the day-to-day running of the Chapter. Board members are encouraged to be in the succession plan for future Executive Committee roles. Being a Board member requires active engagement, tactical and leadership abilities.  

Lastly, the Board of Directors includes Executive Committee members that lead the strategic planning and direction of the chapter. They serve to make business decisions, within the guidelines of the Chapter By-laws, in between board meetings. Executive Committee members are mentors to Board members, requiring active engagement and leadership responsibilities. They ensure the Chapter has consistent leadership through succession planning and recruiting and retention efforts.

The interview and selection of Board positions is completed by the Nomination Committee1 designated by the Chapter President.
