The Board of Directors is composed of five executive officers that make up the Executive Committee, and 17 County Directors – one for each county in Arizona, with two for Pima and Maricopa Counties due to their higher populations. The chairs of the ASBA Hispanic-Native American Indian Caucus and the ASBA Black Caucus also serve on the board of directors. Please note, all must be current school board members.

The Governance Committee was established in 2011. Its purpose is to provide annual review of ASBA’s governance procedures and provide recommendations. Governance Committee members are approved each year at the Board of Directors’ meeting.

The Finance Committee is chaired by the ASBA treasurer and composed of members of the board of directors who are appointed by the president each year.
