It’s also a pleasure to welcome Tammi, Shane and Shawna to the board. As new members, they each bring valuable insights and perspectives that will broaden our deliberations and benefit our certificants and BOC-accredited facilities.”
Claudia Zacharias, MBA, CAE, president and chief executive officer of BOC, echoed Nichelson’s welcome, noting that all seven of the newly elected board members are eager to contribute to BOC’s work.
“Each of these seven members of the board of directors talks freely about the joy of giving back,” Zacharias stated. “When service is a component in a personal set of values, it means that your colleagues can depend on you to do what is right for the group overall. That trust is a real compliment from the certificants who elected this group. I look forward to working with the Board on behalf of all our certificants and accredited facilities, and the patients they serve.”
