Headquartered in Chicago, Ill., the group is governed by an Executive Council. Academy members are truly the elite professionals of this field and are internationally known for their work. Membership is offered by invitation only, and the Bylaws restrict the growth of the Academy's membership in order to maintain the highest levels of excellence. The Academy traditionally holds an annual educational session. Scheduled for the first complete week in August, this meeting is typically open only to members and their invited guests; in an effort to enhance fellowship and professional growth, guest registration has been held to an approximate ratio of two guests for every one member in attendance. Spouses and children of the attendees are also invited to participate in the social activities.
