Board of Directors

PACT is a member-run organization and as such our board of directors is made up of representatives from member companies. The board is made up of officers (President, Past President, Vice-President and Treasurer) and directors who each oversee a portfolio that the board and membership deem important. Board terms are three years each and the officers and directors are elected in different years in an effort to ensure continuity and stability for both the board and for PACT.
