Our Board

The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence has been governed by volunteers since its inception. Directors are elected for a three-year term. The Board is responsible for managing the activities, property and affairs of the Corporation.

The Board of Directors utilizes a self-perpetuating board model and is responsible for the nominating process, the election of the Board members and Officers.  

The Board is the sole governing and fiduciary body for NCADD, and as such it sets policy, develops and approves strategic plans and related resource allocation, and is responsible for the performance of the organization as a whole.
