Board and Committees

The NDHSAA Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from member schools representing different factions of our membership. Directors are elected by the membership to a four-year term. They may only hold a board position for one term in their lifetime. The Board sets the policies that govern NDHSAA. The Board meets on a monthly basis. All Board information is available on our website. Click HERE for more NDHSAA Board and Committee Information.
