2024 Board of Directors Application

Term: 1, 2, or 3 years (Jan – Dec)

The PYP leadership is comprised of a 100% volunteer Board of Directors (BOD) who are the decision makers and ambassadors for our non-profit organization. Board members design and manage projects, hold Executive and/or Committee Advisor positions, and ensure all events carry out the organization’s mission by providing value to our members. Each year, PYP selects new Board Members to join the Leadership Team for 1, 2 or 3-year terms running January through December. The Nominating Committee, led by the Past President and composed of current Board Members, oversees the selection process.

Applications for the 2024 Board of Directors are currently being accepted. If you are interested, please complete the online application below. Once your application has been submitted a member of the nominating committee will follow up. The selection of the slate occurs in September.
