Board of Governors (BOG)

The AYA Board of Governors (BOG) sets the direction and goals for the Assembly delegation and the Association. This executive body of the AYA is comprised of twenty-one members elected by the delegates from their number, four officers and six ex-officiis members. The Board meets a minimum of four times each year to receive reports of the AYA committees, act on policy questions contained in these reports, consider and determine Assembly topics, approve the budget and review the operational plan for the AYA. The Board participates in the nomination of candidates for election as Alumni Fellow to the Yale Corporation and in the selection of recipients of the Yale Medal, and establishes the committee structure of the Association within the framework of the AYA Constitution.
