COB Changes for 2020-2021

ADHO Leadership for 2020-2021

ADHO operates on the reliance of its volunteers. We are particularly grateful for the Constituent Organizations (COs) that form ADHO and who make it a diverse and engaging organization. Each of these entities has a representative on the ADHO Constituent Organization Board (COB), which makes decisions for the organization, and we would like to thank the outgoing representatives for each of these organizations and welcome our new incoming and remaining members for what is sure to be a challenging year:
