What Is the Role of the Board of Directors?

The Board of Directors is a working, grassroots, group that understands the needs of the communities it serves and seeks to fulfill the organization’s mission of providing training and education to New York’s planning and zoning board members. The Board is comprised of eighteen Regional Representatives, who represent the State’s nine regions, and six Directors-at-Large. According to the by-laws, Regional Representatives must be members of a local planning board or ZBA, while the Directors-at-Large may be land use attorneys, engineers, educators, or others involved in some aspect of local government. Members of the Executive Committee include the current President, 1st and 2nd Vice Presidents, and the Immediate Past President.
