Board And Staff

Board of Directors

The BCPE is governed by an elected board of directors comprised of ten certificate holders and one public member, and is managed by an Executive Director and Executive Administrator. Each director serves a three year term and is eligible to serve a second, consecutive, three-year term, if re-elected to the Board.  Directors assist the BCPE in carrying out its mission and furthering its goals.

The BCPE is endorsed by the International Ergonomics Association as a recognized ergonomics certifying body and is a corporate member of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence.
