ASCH Executive Committee and Council

The Council is responsible for the running of the ASCH except when the Business Meeting is in session, and acts as the ASCH’s board of governors. The Executive Committee makes recommendations to the Council and Business Meeting.

Each year, ASCH membership elects a new President-Elect and two new members to the Council (including a graduate student Council Member). All active members are eligible to participate in these elections through nominations and voting.
