The Board consists of no less than 12 and not more than 20 persons. The Directors have certain responsibilities for carrying out the Mission of the Academy. These include but are not limited to:
The recent revision of original Bylaws has expanded Board membership, lengthened terms of service, and clearly clarified and outlined the rights and responsibilities of Members and Directors.
