Our Board of Directors 2018-2019

Officers serve one year terms on the board. Elections are held once a year at the June PDM. All officers except the president can serve up to three consecutive years in the same position, except where chapter circumstances may require a term modification.

Do you have an interest or desire to meet people, help run a small not-for-profit business, and donate time to a well recognized organization while earning re-certification points? If you answered yes to any or all of the above, then maybe a role working our Board of Directors is for you. The board of directors is made up of dedicated volunteers working in various capacities to support the programs of APICS in our area.

If this sounds like something you would like to consider,
contact the Chapter President.

A Word About Volunteers

Like other APICS Chapters throughout the world, the Tappan Zee Chapter relies strongly on its volunteers who join the Board of Directors or assist as needed. We would like to thank all those volunteers who have helped the chapter throughout the years to make the Tappan Zee Chapter what it is today.

WIIFM (What's In It For Me?): Networking, opportunities to hone your skills in a non-threatening environment, and the satisfaction of contributing to a job well done.

We need your help! The Board welcomes any APICS member in good standing to lend a hand. We have tasks to fit your schedule. Consider helping out your chapter. If you have any questions please contact any Board member.
