PAT Executive Board

The PAT Executive Board is comprised of PAT officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary), the OEA directors, and nine directors elected at-large.  Executive Board directors are elected for two-year terms and may be reelected.  Executive Board members establish and maintain contact with their assigned representatives (by zone), provide assistance to representatives upon request and serve as a liaison to committees. The Executive Board meets monthly and members regularly attend Representative Assembly (RA) and other PAT sponsored meetings.
