ASCD Governance

ASCD is governed by a Board of Directors, which meets several times a year and is chaired by the association's president. Elections for the ASCD Board of Directors are contested, and no campaigning is allowed. A balanced slate of diverse, qualified candidates is selected annually by the Nominations Committee, and those elected serve a four-year term.
