Executive Council

The Executive meets on the last Tuesday of the month but will meet more often when necessary to handle the regular affairs of AESES. They are charged with the responsibility of overseeing the daily/weekly operations of the organization.

Your Executive is committed to improving the working lives of our members through contract administration, education seminars and a variety of activities designed to promote collegiality and participation.

At the May 2024 AESES Board of Representatives meeting, the Executive Council was elected to serve you for a two-year term.
