Board of Directors

A seat on AAA’s Board of Directors is one of the most important and direct ways to serve as a steward of the organization and the anatomical field. The Board is tasked with setting the Association’s strategic plan, acting on behalf of the membership to advance issues of import, and driving the mission forward. Whether as a future Board member or another form of volunteer service to your professional association, learn how you can get involved.
