Board of Directors

The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Board of Directors leads the National Governing Body in the pursuit of the realization of its vision and the fulfillment of its mission, rather than managing the activities of the NGB in any particular area or on a day-to-day basis.  The Board ensures that the activities of the NGB are guided by clear strategic plans, organizational priorities, and program goals and objectives consistent with the vision, mission and objectives of the NGB.  The Board schedules four meetings yearly, including one annual in-person meeting in May, and three quarterly teleconferences.
