Each quarter, the ACBS Board meets to discuss the business and issues facing the organization. All ACBS members are welcome to attend and are encouraged to participate in the meetings.

This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in your Society and provide input to your Directors.

Voting is restricted to Chapter Presidents, each of whom serves as a board member. Locations for the meeting varies geographically in order to allow our members the ability to attend a meeting near them.

Information on the upcoming meetings is available in The Rudder or in this section of the website.

ALL ACBS members are welcome to attend.
