Leadership Structure

The National Iranian American Council is steered by a Board of Directors, who are elected to staggered two-year terms to provide both continuity and flexibility to the organization’s governing body, and it includes influential leaders in the Iranian-American community from varied locations around the country. The Board may expand as the organization grows to include leaders from all areas of the country where large populations of Iranian-Americans reside.

The Executive Committee, consisting of the chairman, president, treasurer, secretary, and compliance officer, are elected to one-year terms by the Board of Directors.

NIAC holds two annual board meetings where the Board of Directors and Officers review plans and develop strategies for short term and longer terms of the organization.

The Board oversees the operation of the organization, reviews reports, evaluates progress, and ensures that the organization continues to progress in fulfilling its mission and goals.

NIAC’s Advisory Board consists of prominent individuals from varying backgrounds with a wide range of knowledge and expertise. The Advisory Board provides advice to NIAC’s Board of Directors in order to ensure that all its activities further the group’s goal of encouraging Iranian-American participation in American civic life.

The committees of the Board, with the help and leadership of the Officers, concentrates on development, public relations, community involvement, and nomination/ elections.
