The SAA Board is united in its support for Executive Director Angelica Cortez, and is excited for what the future holds.

The Board continues to operate in compliance with all SAA policies and bylaws, and to serve the SAA with integrity. As previously stated, the decision to appoint Executive Director Angelica Cortez was taken by quorum after much deliberation, and was unanimous among those present. Claims on social media and elsewhere that the Board has not adhered to policy are not based on factual information. They are without substantive or legal merit. While change and transition can be challenging, we, the SAA community, have the opportunity to react to change with grace.

The Board looks forward to its upcoming work in supporting the transition of Ms. Cortez, and in communicating new initiatives to the membership.
