Lifetime Trustees
  • Lifetime Trustees consist of former board members and other prominent individuals who have been elected by a majority of the membership of the board. Their mission is to create a more involved and informed way for retiring board members and other members to stay in touch with fellow trustees and with the work of the Aspen Institute. They are a key arm of the Institute, responsible for providing advice concerning strategic issues facing the organization.
