It is time to vote in the PCO Board Member election. The PCO membership currently elects the majority of the PCO Board and this year we have one candidate running for an open board seat. The PCO Board’s responsibility to our members is to govern with a style that emphasizes outward vision, encourages a diversity of viewpoints; and provides strategic leadership, collective decisions, and future focus. Our Governance Committee presents a slate of well-qualified applicants that balance the talents of our continuing board members.
Our PCO Bylaws require 10% of our client/members to vote in order for board candidate(s) to be confirmed and approved. Your vote remains critical in this voting process.
Below is information on each candidate. Your electronic ballot appears under the candidate bio(s).
