Board of Directors

Some say our Board of directors is a force to be reckoned with. Many have been CEOs and CFOs in top Fortune 500 Companies. They are leaders in law, finance, and business, and have two things in common. Each shares a passion for history and the environment, and a deep love for their community. Their well-rounded character traits, open mindedness, savvy business sense and love for BIPS help us make good business decisions every day. We are truly grateful to have them on board.
