Executive Council

The Executive Council, along with the Advisory Board, makes up the governing mechanism of NAVSA and is elected into position by the general membership. The Council, unlike the Board, executes the tasks of the organization (funding, prizes, database management, and so on).  For further information about the Executive Council and the Advisory Board, see our Constitution under "About NAVSA" (left-hand menu). If you have an issue that you wish to see addressed, feel free to write to the President of NAVSA, Dennis Denisoff, or to any individual member of the Executive Council or Advisory Board.
