Board of Directors

Each year, the Board seeks candidates to fill specific skill sets.  In order to become a Board Member through the election process, it is helpful for a candidate to have been involved with the Association and/or to have prior volunteering experience. With that in mind, if you're interested in future Board service, start thinking about becoming involved now. Contact an SMA Board Member (phone numbers available upon login in members only section) or SMA Staff member to learn more.

Are you a SMA member interested in serving on the Board of Directors? There's certain criteria a member must meet in order to run. Click the button below for more information..
