Board of Directors

The Board of Directors (BOD) is the governing body of the association and is empowered to establish policies and manage the property, business, and affairs of AHDI, subject to the limitations of the Articles of Incorporation, of the Bylaws, and of the California nonprofit mutual benefit corporation law. The BOD is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the association based on trends and drivers in the industry, informed research, and member feedback and input.


AHDI voting members elect board directors each year based on the number of open positions approved by the board and in accordance with the bylaws.


Note: The Board of Directors was renamed from the National Leadership Board in November 2018.

When do these groups meet?

The vast majority of committees and groups meet by online webinar several times a year (either quarterly or in association with a vote or decision pending approval by that committee or group). In addition to regular meetings, many of these groups also communicate regularly through an email listserv, a broadcast email service that allows committee/group members to network and communicate.
