These are not pre-requisites and members without these qualifications are equally encouraged to apply.
Roles for Board members include expansion of membership and member services/value, and committee chairs to lead the various functional committees and roles within the organization which include:
Annual Conference Committee
Board Development Committee
Education and Outreach Committee
Fund Development Committee
Specialty Conference Committee
