The Board of Trustees administers the not-for-profit organization with guidance from three national assemblies and six regional assemblies. College Board Trustees are responsible for assisting in legal and fiduciary decisions; approving the mission, strategic goals, and objectives of the organization; establishing policies; and advising those responsible for the management of the organization. Each assembly provides College Board with guidance on issues and activities related to their areas of professional interest, and elects Trustees to ensure a balance of regional and professional perspectives.
