Meet Our Team

We are a non-profit collaborative of great minds working together. Our dedicated staff and volunteer boards and committees are comprised of Thought Leaders who help govern and oversee policies, funding, and operations. The Operating Board meets monthly, acting as leaders, and faculty, and reviewing activities. The Advisory Board meets virtually quarterly contributing diverse industry expertise and serving as researchers, faculty, committee members, reviewers, and sharing influence in our allied fields.
