Our Annual Meeting and Election of Officers will be held on April 4th. We have a few board members who have retired, therefore we are looking for two board members. When the BPCIA has a vacant seat on the board, we fill them with our member candidates who have expressed interest, have been approved by the nominating committee and voted in by our Board according to our by-laws.
As we look forward to electing our 2017-18 board, we are seeking members who have an interest in serving on the board. We are looking for those who are active in the Association, are available to attend our monthly meetings and have a strong belief in the ethics, community involvement and purpose of the Association.
If you are interested in being considered for the BPCIA Board, please contact our office to receive the application.
