AAALAC International adopts new governance structure and accompanying bylaws, holds first meeting of new Directors
February 2017 - During its last annual meeting in September, AAALAC International ratified a change in its governance structure and created a Board of Directors (BOD). Since then, the organization held elections and named a new BOD comprised of six officers, six directors, and two representatives from the Council on Accreditation (the president and vice president). The new BOD was elected by the Member Organization Delegates (previously known as the Board of Trustees) who represent a wide variety of prestigious scientific and educational professional organizations from around the world. The change to the new governance structure enhances the responsiveness of AAALAC International's governing body to the needs of the organization and its program participants and further engages the Member Organizations through the formation of Advisory Groups. The Board of Directors held a very productive first meeting earlier this month.
"The new Board of Directors is committed to the future of AAALAC International and is part of a milestone event in the history of our organization," said Dr. Kathryn Bayne, AAALAC International's Chief Executive Officer. "AAALAC is privileged to be on the receiving end of the Board's expertise and wisdom."
