Board of trustees

NTEA is governed by its Association Bylaws under leadership of a member-elected Board of Trustees. Board candidates are nominated by the general membership for three-year terms, and an election is held prior to the annual NTEA Convention. A Board-appointed executive director oversees the day-to-day administration of Association activities.
