About Us


CAD’s Board of Directors includes four members of the Executive Board and one representative from each of the three Affiliate Chapters. Within each Chapter, Affiliate Chapters are governed by similar structures to address local needs of the membership. Meetings for the Board of Directors are conducted in both open and closed sessions. The agendas for the open sessions can be found here. The official business of the CAD Board of Directors is documented in the minutes. Board meeting minutes are important legal documents of the association and represent the actions of the board.


CAD is a member-driven advocacy organization. The legislation of CAD comes from our founding documents, the governance of our volunteer leaders, and membership motions made at our business meetings.
