There are 8 boards in which AASA members can participate. It is advised that members join no more than 3 boards, unless they are planning to devote plenty of time to AASA and are interested in running for an officer position. Each board is specific to an area in which the Executive Board has determined will be an integral part of the theme in their respective year. The Directive Board undergoes the same election process as the Executive Board. Anyone interested in joining any of the boards should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of the boards in which they are interested.
