Board members serve 4-year terms and may not serve two consecutive terms. The PMRA Board meets in person at least once every two years, and that meeting takes place at the Public Management Research Conference. Board members should expect to have committee and decision making responsibilities throughout their term, which will be determined by the goals and priorities of the President (as well as the PMRA Charter).
