Join the Board

When positions are open (elected or appointed), we canvas the ISCA membership via emails for those who are interested in being considered for a position.  Individuals can also indicate interest on the ISCA membership form, conference registration form, or as part of the annual conference feedback.  Or email the current President for more information about an open elected position.


The ISCA Board meets four (4) times per year in Des Moines with three Saturday meetings in September, January, and April, as well as a Summer LDI (Leadership Development Institute) and Board meeting (two days) in July.  We also work together at the annual ISCA Conference (three days) the Sunday-Tuesday in November.

Committee work is typically done via email, phone, or Webinar.
