Introducing the Inaugural ATAP Board of Directors

In the Fall of 2016, the newly established Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP) put out a call for self-nominations to the organization’s very first Board of Directors.  120 individuals expressed interest in being considered for the Board, and began a vetting process that narrowed the list to 30 finalists, and then to the final, selected 7 Board Members.

It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to the 2017 ATAP Board of Directors.

This diverse, accomplished Board of Directors will start immediately and have the primary purpose of continuing the work of establishing ATAP’s infrastructure, as well as establishing the Association’s priorities and strategy for the remainder of 2017.  The Board will also work closely with ATAP’s Executive Director (who will be a non-voting member of the Board) and an Advisory Council to ensure that the Association is enabled to execute on it’s Mission, Vision and Values.  For more information on ATAP, please visit
