Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees

The American Craft Council is governed by a board of trustees responsible for the policies, programs, and fiduciary well-being of the organization. Trustees are drawn from the spectrum of the craft community and allied professions. Meeting twice each year, they serve a three-year term and may be reelected for one additional three-year term or up to three special one-year terms. Trustees elect the officers of the board: the chair, vice chair, secretary, and treasurer. These elected officers and chairs of various committees form the executive committee of the board, which meets several times during the year.
