NAIS Board of Trustees

The NAIS Board of Trustees, currently composed of 16 individuals (and no less than 12), addresses its fiduciary, strategic, and generative duties, led by the officers and the Executive Committee. The full board meets three times a year: in November, in late February or early March, and again in June. The board has four standing committees and one subcommittee.

The NAIS Board of Trustees is committed to diversity and actively seeks those belonging to underrepresented populations.
