PIBC Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall governance of PIBC’s activities and business, including appointing officer positions and certain committee chairs, setting the annual budget, determining policy, setting PIBC's strategic direction, and providing overall governance leadership for the Institute.

The Board consists of eleven voting volunteer members, and is elected every two years. It includes PIBC's President, President-Elect, eight Certified Members, and one Candidate member representative. In addition, the Board may also include non-voting guest participants including representatives of the Institute's Student members.

We officially welcomed our Board of Directors for the 2021-2023 Board term online on Friday, June 18, 2021 at the PIBC 2021 Annual Conference.
