Executive Council

IPMA-HR is governed by a 14-voting member Executive Council, consisting of a president-elect, president, and past president; one regional member from each of the association's four regions; and seven at-large representatives. In addition, there are a number of committees and task forces that assist in guiding the direction of the association in all of its various functions.
