SAA Board of Directors
The SAA Board of Directors includes the  president, president-elect, and eight members at large who are national SAA members that are elected to one-year terms aside from the president-elect.

The SAA Board of Directors serves as the connection among the national SAA, local SAA chapters, volunteers, and student members. Board members represent the breadth and depth of SAA initiatives and interests by following the outlined Roles and Responsibilities and by serving as committee chairs guided by the strategic direction in the areas of public awareness, philanthropy, leadership, education, communications, chapter and member relations, and the annual AAA Conference programming. 

Nominations and Elections
Elections for the SAA Board of Directors are held annually in February. Applications for nominees are accepted the fall prior, usually opening in October, and the official slate is recommended by the SAA Nominations Committee to the standing SAA Board of Directors for approval. Notifications are sent to current SAA members (Undergraduate Associate Members are not eligible to run) when the call for applications is open and the website is updated with additional information on how to apply.
