Board of Directors


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

ABC is a member-run association, thus, board members identify issues critical to merit shop construction and work together to find solutions.  Our association is governed by a 13-member board of directors.  The board meets monthly to review and monitor the chapter’s goals, objectives and strategic plan.

For more information about the Central California Chapter Board of Directors, contact Chapter President, Laura Barnes.
