Board of Directors

The Ballots Are In

By Meredith WiseOctober 20, 2016

An Education Forum attendee casts her vote for members of the Board of Directors.

Please welcome our new (and returning) Board members.

After a run-off tiebreaker between two director at large candidates, we can officially announce all of the new (and some returning) members of the Board of Directors. One hundred and sixteen program directors, representing about 54 percent of our member programs, cast their votes in this year’s Board election held at the Education Forum last week as well as online. The new Board’s term will officially start on January 1, 2017.

Thank you to everyone who voted, and congratulations to our newly elected (and returning) Board members!
