We have two seats open on the Board of Directors this year. This will give APBP a ten-member Board for the 2017 year. After strategic discussions on the best governance model for APBP at this time of growth and change, we have determined that decreasing the size of the Board (from thirteen to ten members) will provide many advantages to the association.
As a Board we are focused on shifting to a more high-level, strategic governance. A smaller Board has the potential to work more nimbly and efficiently in decision-making during face-to-face meetings as well as conference calls and email exchanges held continuously throughout the year. It will also open opportunities for active and dedicated APBP members willing to donate time and effort in serving the association as committee chairs or in other focused leadership positions.
Thank you for taking time to review the candidates for this year’s Board of Directors election and for submitting your vote
