Previous Teams

Below are members of previous VEFFA executive teams. Board of Representative (BoR) 2010 is the last BoR of VEFFA. At our 2017 annual conference, VEFFA members voted to restructure the leadership team into two separate bodies: Board of Advisers and Board of Executives. The Executive Team (ExT or BoE) is almost equivalent in function to previous Board of Representatives. ExT members serve for one year while BoA serves on a 1 year rolling basis and act as a connection between executive teams.
