CEIA is a member driven non-profit organization.

This is a management philosophy of paramount importance to the association. The membership elects a board to represent its interests and direct the Association to meet its mission and goals. The president serves as the chief elected officer.

Elections are held yearly just prior to the annual conference. Newly elected officers are installed at the conference in the spring of each year. The President is first elected as the Executive Vice-President (President-Elect). After one year in office the Executive Vice-President becomes the President. After serving a term as President, the President then becomes the Immediate Past-President. Each position comes with a set of required duties. Vice-Presidents are elected for a period of two years.

Day-to-day operations of the Association are handled by the Executive Director. Our Executive Director coordinates membership, conference/event registrations, communications, and customer service.
