Organizational Structure

Board of Directors

ACHA is governed by a Board of Directors, which consists of 18 members and, as the chief operating body of the association, develops procedures to implement the policies of the association as established by the Assembly of Representatives, and provides general direction for the association's activities. The board is comprised of the Executive Committee, four members-at-large, six regional representatives, and two student representatives. Members of the Board (except the Executive Director) are elected by ACHA members.

ACHA is divided into 11 regional affiliate organizations. Each affiliate organization is governed by its own elected affiliate officers, who provide guidance and leadership to members and help forge strong partnerships with colleagues on the state or regional level. ACHA members receive concurrent membership in the affiliate organization at no additional cost.
