The Board for Certification of Genealogists consists of fifteen trustees and a professional executive director. All trustees are certified and all serve without compensation. BCG’s associates elect one-third of the trustees each year.
Voting officers of the executive committee (President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Member at Large) are elected annually by the trustees. Three additional non-voting members complete the committee: the most recent past President willing to serve as an ex officio member for one year after leaving office, the Executive Director, and General Counsel.
Trustees serve three-year terms and may only serve for three consecutive terms. Former trustees regain eligibility to serve after two years.
