Advisory Board

At the Executive Board of Director’s Inaugural VBA Meeting, it was determined by the Board that they would appoint 11 Advisory Board Members.
Appointed by the Executive Board of Directors, the Advisory Board Members were chosen based upon their diverse representation of industry segments, their professional background, and right composition of knowledge, skills, abilities and diversity, and/or networking community.
The VBA relies on their areas of expertise or networks to fill in the gaps or in aspects where the VBA may be limited and in need.
