American Society of Anesthesiologists - ASA Board of Directors

ASA Board of Directors

< Back

The Board of Directors (BOD) is composed of one director and an alternate director from each of the 56 component societies, the 12 officers, the editor-in-chief for the Journal Anesthesiology®, chairs of all sections, the chair of the delegation to the AMA, and ASA past presidents. The BOD directs publication and distribution of all official documents, journals and reports mandated by the House of Delegates (HOD). It establishes and oversees the ASA's reserve funds and executes duties specified in the bylaws. It also exercises full powers of the HOD in the interim between HOD meetings and reports its activities to the House for ratification at that body's annual sessions.
