The NAEYC Governing Board provides mission-based leadership and strategic governance for the association. While day-to-day operations are led by NAEYC’s Executive Director, the Board-Executive Director relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected. Serving on the NAEYC Governing Board is an extraordinary opportunity for members who are passionate about NAEYC’s vision and mission, deeply committed to its values and beliefs, and skilled leaders with a track record of effective governance experience.
The majority of Board members are elected by the association membership, with the Treasurer and up to four at-large positions appointed by the Board. Board members serve 4-year terms on a staggered basis. The Executive Committee is comprised of the Board President, President-elect or Past President depending on which seat is occupied, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
