Board of Directors

The BACB’s Board of Directors is responsible for establishing the organization’s mission and vision and overseeing its management. Elected directors traditionally serve a three-year term and may serve a second term if reelected. Directors serve in an unpaid, volunteer capacity. Directors represent a cross section of stakeholders, including practitioners, consumers, employers, faculty, and administrators. Additional information about the Board of Directors is available in the organization’s bylaws.
