PAMP Members have spoken! This week the new PAMP Board of Directors takes their roles and will look forward to building on the work of the previous board in an effort to make PAMP even better. We want to give a heartfelt thank you to the outgoing board for all of their hard work over the past two years and in the coming weeks we will individually profile each of the new members, but, if you’re new to PAMP or were unable to vote, we’d like to introduce you to the 2017-2018 Board of Directors.
