Board of Directors


Whilst our operations are driven and managed by students, we are overseen by a National Board of Directors. The National Board of Directors is comprised of distinguished members in the business community, academics, the National Affairs Director and the President of each state. Although not involved in the operational aspects of the association in each state, the National Board of Directors provides immense guidance, support, and ensures the stability and accountability of the association.
