AACN Governance

AACN is governed by an 14-member Board of Directors, each of whom represents a member institution. The Association convenes various committees including Board Committees (Executive, Governance, Finance and Audit Committee), Nominating Committee, Advisory Committees including Diversity/Inclusion, Government Affairs, Membership, and Program Subcommittees, and establishes Task Forces and Advisory Groups as needed to focus on topics of critical concern.  Leadership Network Steering Committees oversee the activities of AACN’s seven Leadership Networks for faculty and staff. A Joint Council convenes annually and provides an opportunity for committees, task forces and advisory groups to engage directly with the Board of Directors.
