AMPP Board of Directors

Meet the Association for Materials Protection and Performance Boards

The Association for Materials Protection and Performance has two Boards to oversee two branches of the organization in compliance with United States tax code requirements for non-profit organizations with certification bodies.

The AMPP Board serves the 501(c)(6) branch, which oversees areas such as certification, accreditation, and advocacy. The AMPP Global Center Board serves the 501(c)(3) branch, which comprises activities such as education, standards, research, conferences, and events.

Each board’s vice chair serves as a member of the other board to ensure clear lines of communication and consistency in working toward the same mission on behalf of the membership.
