Board of Directors


ABC is governed by a board of directors comprised of representatives from our member companies.

ABC is a member-run association. Board members identify issues critical to merit shop construction and work together to find solutions.  Our association is governed by a 12-member board of directors.  The board meets monthly to review and monitor the chapter’s goals, objectives and strategic plan.

All members of the association are eligible to serve on the board. Anyone interested should contact Chapter President, Laura Barnes.
