Board of Directors

San Diego/Imperial Counties is led by a volunteer board of directors. Members of the Board serve three-year terms, beginning January 1, and are elected at the chapter’s annual meeting in the fall. The officer positions are elected each year, for one-year terms. Board meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month, and meetings are open to any chapter member who would like to attend. Board members lead committees of volunteers to accomplish important work to achieve chapter goals. Click on any of the board members’ names below to learn more.
