NOVAA Board of Directors

NOVAA is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. Board of Directors serve a minimum one-year term and in addition to serving on the Board serve as chairs of the NOVAA committees and workgroups that guide the organization: Marketing, Workshops, Membership and Professional Development.

All members are encouraged to take their turn to serve on the Board of Directors. Serving on the board of a nonprofit is a great resume and experience builder, as well as a way to give back to the organization! 

If you are interested in a Board of Directors position or in serving on a committee, please contact boarddevelopment@novaa.org for more information.
