ATA Officers & Board of Directors
Under ATA’s bylaws, the Officers and Board of Directors have the authority and responsibility for ATA’s governance and policy direction in legislative and regulatory issues. A nominating committee headed by the Immediate Past Chairman selects board member nominees biennially with elections occurring at the annual membership meeting in odd-numbered years. Those listed below were elected at the membership meeting held October 24, 2019.
Officers and directors serve a two-year term. The ATA Board meets at least three times a year, as well as at the membership meeting. An Executive Committee, consisting of the six elected officers and up to ten members selected by the Chairman of the Board, meets in lieu of the full Board upon the call of the Chairman. Board meetings are open to all ATA members.
