AES Board & Staff

The governing body of the AES is the Board of Directors, with responsibility for the overall function and direction of the Society. Each Director is also a member of the larger Board of Governors, along with regional Vice Presidents and Governors at large. Each of these volunteer Board members are elected by the voting membership of the Society to manage AES business, membership, events, publications and online resources with the assistance of the Society’s volunteer-led topical committees. Daily administrative affairs at the Society’s headquarters are managed by a full-time Executive Director appointed by the corporate officers, and the AES Headquarters staff.
