Board of Directors

NAICJA's membership elects a Board of Directors of 20 active NAICJA members who represent and preside in each of NAICJA’s ten designated regions (two members from each region sit on the Board). NAICJA’s membership also elects a Steering Committee which consists of members who assist the Board of Directors in an advisory capacity. Each Board Member is supported by one Steering Committee Member who hails from the Board Member’s region. Steering Committee Members do not have the right to vote in Board meetings unless a Board Member from their region is absent.
