The PVMA Board of Directors consists of 7 members: three officers and four general directors. Board Directors are elected by the general membership by way of written ballot. Director terms are three years in length, with the president-elect serving one year and a one year term as President following. Regular elections are held in May and special election can be held as needed.

Thank you for the volunteer efforts of our board of directors: past, present and future!
