The Technical, Education, and Certification boards develop programs, products, and services for their respective areas of responsibility and recommend policies to the Board of Directors. Each of the T/E/C Boards has a representative from their respective board that serves as a member of the Certification Examination Advisory Group (CEAG) who must be AACE certified. The chairs of each of the T/E/C Boards are appointed by the Board of Directors. The terms of the chairs and members of the T/E/C Boards run concurrent with the term of the President. A member from each associate board is elected to serve as a Vice-President on the association's Board of Directors to represent the program goals, plans, and activities of their respective boards; their terms of service are staggered to ensure an effective Board transition. Each serves a two year term.
