Through an elaborate committee structure, including committees and councils, ASHRAE policies are established by a Board of Directors comprised of Society members elected by the membership. Board members serve terms of one to three years, including the President who serves a one‐year term.

The ASHRAE Board of Directors includes the Executive Committee, the Directors and Regional Chairs, and the Directors-at-Large.
