Board Of Trustees

MEET THE TRUSTEES

O.U.P.S. is governed by a board of trustees comprised of representatives from industry stakeholder groups. During their two-year term, trustees play a major role in setting policy and direction for our organization.

 

Quarterly board meetings are held throughout the state; these meetings are open to all O.U.P.S. members. The board also sponsors an annual membership meeting.
