Board of Directors

An Executive Board is the decision-making body of the organization. Members from each of the eight regions across the state elect one representative to the NYSCA Board. The Senior Director of CARCC also serves on the NYSCA Board.  Each Regional Representative Board Member holds meetings with members in their area to ensure all members have a voice in NYSCA operations.  A statewide meeting of the entire membership is held on an annual basis.
