About the LEAGUE's Board of Control / Staff Listing

The Art Students League of New York has always been governed by the Board of Control, annually elected by the membership. The Board consists of twelve officers, of which three must be students enrolled in the school. At the Annual Meeting, League members elect a President, two Vice-Presidents and three other officers. Of the six officers chosen, at least three, not including the President, must be selected from the retiring Board of Control. The six officers, elected at this Annual Meeting, then meet within ten days and proceed to elect six other officers, appoint a Treasurer, a Corresponding Secretary and a Recording Secretary. Officers of the Board of Control shall receive no remuneration from the Art Students League of New York for their services and are not eligible for any salaried position in the League.

The Board of Control endeavors to interpret and carry out the wishes of the students and members adhering to the Constitution and devising and implementing policies in accordance with its mission. It determines financial and administrative policies. These policies are executed by the Executive Director, who works with the Board in an advisory capacity, and is in charge of the administration of the school. The Board meets on a regular basis. Requests, suggestions or student problems must be submitted in writing to the Executive Director.
