Board of Directors

The board of directors oversees COPAS operations to assure that policies, projects and other activities authorized by the council are executed in a proper and timely manner.

The COPAS board of directors is composed of nine members, each serving a three-year term. Three directors are elected annually at the COPAS Fall Meetings by the council. Officers are elected by fellow board members and serve one-year terms that commence on January 1.
