National Advisory Board

The National Advisory Board (NAB) is democratically elected to support members by addressing emerging issues of broad potential impact and making recommendations for the organization when needed.

In 2019, the Cheer and Dance National Advisory Boards were combined to one NAB in an effort to streamline conversations and planning that affect both cheer and dance while allowing for separate conversations that are relevant to one or the other. We look forward to more meaningful collaboration of all members.
