Modernizing governance to strengthen ASSP’s future and increase member voice involves a transition from a House of Delegates to an at-large advisory group, empowering the Board of Directors to fully govern the Society. This shift would align ASSP with best management practices of today’s nonprofit professional organizations and enable the advisory group to inform and influence the Board.
