2021-2022 Board of Directors

2021–2022 AJA Officers and Board of Directors

The 2021-2022 Officers and Board of Directors will be sworn in on Sunday, April 11.

The governing body of AJA is the Board of Directors. The Board is the final authority on all matters pertaining to the management of AJA. It sets policies for AJA and relies upon elected officers, staff, and committees to implement or to develop plans to implement those policies. The Board is ultimately accountable to the membership of AJA.


AJA thanks all of its Board members for their diligent service to the Association and to the field of local corrections.
