The National Basketball Players' Association (NBPA) is a union made up of active professional basketball players on the rosters of NBA teams.
Established in 1954, the NBPA currently has 450 members spread across 41 different countries.
Each season, every team elects a player and an alternate to serve on the NBPA's Board of Player Representatives.
These player representatives attend and speak on behalf of their team on all Player Representative meetings. Being on the board, they nominate and elect the NBPA's executive committee while also playing a role in selecting the Executive Director.
