ASEC Board of Directors
The African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit approved in 2006. We have a 2-level governance model for our Board of Directors:
Founding Members: There are eight Founding Members of the ASEC Board of Directors--
- the President/Leader of each of the four religious communities that founded ASEC serves as a Founding Board Member
- the President/Leader of each of the four universities that began ASEC serves as a Founding Board Member
Directors: All other board members are considered "Directors"
Associate Members promote and further the mission of ASEC, make a financial contribution and are invited to participate in ASEC activities. Each Associate Member organization chooses a representative that serves as a point of contact for ASEC. Two Associate Members are designated to represent all Associate Members at Board of Directors meetings.
