The CDS Board of Directors is a Member-elected body composed of five Officers (the Executive Committee) and six Directors charged with fiduciary responsibility for the organization and responsiveness to the Membership. The Board meets regularly through virtual meetings that are open to CDS Members and annually with the entire membership in a business meeting during the CDS conference. The Board of Directors is actively engaged in organizational governance as well as policy implementation through committees and working groups open to Members.
