Executive Committee


The Executive Committee advises the Chair and President and CEO on matters pertaining to the Board’s business and staff operations. Between meetings of the Board, the Executive Committee may act on behalf of the entire Board if the full Board’s participation is not feasible or warranted.


The Executive Committee is composed of:

  • The Board Chair
  • The Board Vice Chair-Chair Elect
  • The Immediate Past Board Chair, or in the event the Immediate Past Board Chair is unable to serve, the person designated by the current Board Chair and endorsed by the Board of Directors
  • The President and CEO
  • The Board Secretary-Treasurer
  • Up to three additional Directors appointed by the Vice Chair-Chair Elect (who shall preside as Board Chair during the year for which the appointments are made)

Committee members may serve a maximum of three, one-year terms, which may run consecutively. The composition of the Committee should reflect AACSB?s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
