The Board of Directors of PSIA-AASI Central is composed of 16 elected members and the division’s PSIA-AASI National Representative (non-voting member). Members are elected based on section and discipline:
The division is currently transitioning from two-year terms to three-year terms, with a maximum of seven years of service. This transition will be complete in 2016. Terms expire on a rotating basis.
The Board meets in person twice per year – typically May and August – and by web conference once each month. Meeting minutes are posted to the Central Division community on the PSIA-AASI Community site.
The role of a board member, as defined by the National Council of Nonprofits, is as follows: “Board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as making sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission.”
Members who have been certified at least three years, are at least 18 years of age, are in good standing with PSIA-AASI and PSIA-AASI Central, are legal residents of the United States, and have either a permanent address or are actively teaching within the geographic boundaries of the division are eligible to serve as Section Representatives.
Nominations are accepted for a 30-day period during November/December of each year.
Elections commence early in the election year.
Terms of service start at the first in-person meeting of the fiscal year.
