AGA's new structure

AGA's National Board of Directors approved the governance model below effective July 1, 2019 to position AGA for future growth and success. The National Executive Committee developed the model in consultation with the Governance Committee and based on extensive feedback collected from members and leaders. 

The new governance structure:

  • consolidates the National Board of Directors and National Executive Committee into one 17-member governing board
  • establishes a National Council of Chapters, made-up of one member from each chapter, to advise the board and facilitate connections among chapters
  • creates a streamlined structure with fewer layers for more direct communication between members and leaders
  • gives chapters a strong voice in the decision making of the national organization
  • provides consistent chapter support by professional staff

NCC geographic areas

The 100-member National Council of Chapters, made up of one member from each AGA chapter, will be organized in 8 geographic areas. The areas will be used to select the 8 chapter representatives to serve on the National Governing Board, ensuring equitable geographical representation of the membership on the board. Council members will self-nominate to be considered for a board position, and the Leadership Development Committee will select one council member from each geographic area to serve.
