One volunteer from each district is appointed to serve on the national BTA Board of Directors alongside the national officer team. A total of eight individuals serve on the national board, setting policy for the association and providing guidance on the development of member programs. The board members meet in person two to three times each year and otherwise meet via a conference call each month.
