The Board of Directors
Share |

The SEM Board of Directors is an elected body charged with the overall governance of the Society. It sets policies for the organization and oversees its finances. The Board meets in person twice a year, once in conjunction with the SEM Annual Meeting and once during the spring.

Board terms last two years, with the exception of the President whose effective term is four years (one year as President-Elect, two years as President, and one year as Past President). Board office terms are staggered so that three or four individuals rotate off in any given year. The Board Nominating Committee prepares a slate of candidates for each year’s election.
