Officers and Regents

Academy members elect four officers and four regents to two-year terms. Each year the membership elects a Vice President, who serves as Vice President for a year, then President for a year, then Regent for Nominations for a year. Together, the officers and regents comprise the Board of Regents, which governs the Academy. The ACA Advisory Board, composed of past presidents, provides informal guidance and institutional knowledge to the President and Board. Various other volunteers round out the Academy’s governance through service on committees, the newsletter, cybersecurity/InfoSec and IT, Website, and exhibit curation.

The remaining Officers and Regents are elected by the membership for two-year terms:

  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Regent for Examination Development
  • Regent for Examination Administration
  • Regent for Certification Maintenance
  • Regent for Outreach

The Officers and Regents constitute the Board of Regents, which manages the affairs of the Academy.
