Board of Governors

Representing all branches of the Academy, the 55-person Board of Governors is responsible for the governance, corporate oversight, and strategic direction of the Academy. Governors have a fiduciary responsibility to the Academy and preserve the institution’s financial health while ensuring fulfillment of the Academy’s mission.

The board approves annual goals and the annual budget presented by the CEO, and it approves policies concerning governance, membership and awards. Governors generally attend 7-10 board meetings annually and serve on a board committee. Governors also serve on their branch’s executive committee and are expected to attend Academy events throughout the year.

CEO Bill Kramer oversees a staff of more than 700 who conduct the Academy’s day-to-day business.
