The CSIA Organization

The Association is governed by officers and a Board of Managers who conduct CSIA business between membership meetings. The Board appoints an Executive Committee of five individuals (with the President as an ex-officio member). This committee works through a number of sub-committees, in cooperation with the Association’s Executive Director, to handle day to day issues.
