The Board is composed of voting members drawn from ADEC’s Administrative Council. The Administrative Council is responsible for electing board members, acting as liaisons between their home institution and ADEC, and voting to approve any changes in by-laws.

The Board’s executive committee meets once a month, typically by audio conference, and three times a year face-to-face at ADEC conferences, to address ADEC business. Face-to-face conferences usually occur in conjunction with other land grant gatherings such as the NASULGC conferences. The Executive Committee also serves as the organization’s financial committee. The President and Assistant Treasurer are responsible for presenting monthly financial statements to this body for review and approval.

A Program Panel includes carefully selected individuals from member institutions charged with the strategic planning and creative development aspects of the consortium. The panel’s job is to chart a course for ADEC. The panel presents their recommendations to the board for approval.

Other committees within ADEC are the Marketing and International committees and committees related to specific projects underway.
