Officers/Board of Directors


ASIA is governed by a Board of Directors, whose membership composition is reflective of the multidisciplinary nature of its members. There are twelve (12) Directors, four of whom also serve as elected Officers. Nomination to the Board of ASIA is accomplished through the Directors Nominating Committee, comprised of the immediate past-president (chair) and five others who are either current or past members of the Board. Nominations for new Board appointments are submitted to the current Board of Directors for final vote. Individuals nominated to the Board of Directors have demonstrated significant contribution to the association either by service on committees or the scientific program, or have made significant contribution to the field of spinal cord injury.
