News ATPE 32 ATPE NEWS Consider running for a spot on the ATPE Board of Directors (BOD)! The BOD consists of 20 directors (one from each region) and five state officers. Each region maintains its own independently elected officer corps. The regional director serves as the liaison and representative to the ATPE BOD. This year, 10 regions will elect someone to fill a board seat. If you're not ready to take the plunge and run for a spot on the ATPE Board of Directors, consider running for office in your local unit or region instead!
