Governance

    Click here for the 2019 proposed changes to the MBA Research Bylaws. Voting on the changes will take place at the May 31 Consortium online meeting.

    The Consortium is a not-for-profit organization governed by its membership. Each member state identifies one individual to represent it in Consortium activities. (Most often, the representative is the state program leader for CTE business/marketing programs.) This member group provides overall guidance in the operation of the organization and elects from its membership six individuals to serve on the Board of Trustees. (Elected Trustees must meet specific criteria as described in the Code of Regulations.)

    The Board of Trustees is the official governing body of the organization. The Board consists of nine members, six of whom are elected from and by the Consortium’s member group. Three additional “external” Trustees are appointed by the sitting Board and ratified by the Consortium member group. These external members are full, voting members of the Board. They are selected on the basis of their experience with Career and Technical Education and/or the business community. Typically, two of these appointed Trustees are senior state education department administrators (State CTE Directors, Associate Superintendents, etc.) and the third is a senior representative of the postsecondary community (VP, Executive Dean, etc.).

    Executive officers of the Board of Trustees include: Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary-Treasurer, all elected from the sitting Trustees.

    The organization’s CEO serves as an ex officio, non-voting member of the Board.


    Board Chair (FY19):
     Kevin Reisenauer
    President/CEO: Brenda Clark, Ed.D

    Trustees are elected in June to three-year terms commencing July 1. Sitting Trustees are eligible for re-election. Current members:
