Leadership

Over the past year ASCMA has made changes in our leadership structure. Effective Fall 2019, the Ambassador role has been replaced with a more traditional leadership structure where we have a President, and six different Vice President roles. Each VP also leads a small committee. If you are interested in being more engaged with ASCMA or potentially holding a leadership position in the future, joining a committee is a great way to learn more about what leadership within ASCMA looks like. Below you will find more information on the positions available and our current leadership team. Leadership Applications will be available late in the Fall and positions will follow the calendar year. If you have questions or concerns about ASCMA, please email the member of the executive team who’s responsibilities listed below best align with your question or concern.
