Our 2024 Board of Directors

HRACO’s governance structure is built upon a foundation of volunteerism and strong leadership. The Association is led by a passionate Board of Directors who serve as the guiding force behind our initiatives and uphold the principles outlined in our constitution. 

Our Board-appointed officers work closely with the Board of Directors to ensure the smooth functioning of the Association’s business and programs. With their valuable expertise and commitment, they contribute to the overall success of HRACO and help deliver exceptional value to our members.

To support the day-to-day operations of HRACO, we have the invaluable support of our Chapter Management Professional. Working in a part-time capacity, this dedicated professional oversees the management of our Association, ensuring the seamless execution of our activities and initiatives.

At HRACO, we believe in the power of collaboration and shared leadership. Our volunteer Board of Directors, officers, and Chapter Management Professional work together harmoniously to drive the vision, goals, and mission of HRACO forward.
