Newly elected members include Labor Representative from a site without a collective bargaining agent, Charles W. Marum, maintenance coordinator from Monsanto-Searle Pharmaceutical, Augusta, Ga.; and two new Directors-at-Large, Monty Gartin, process technician, ExxonMobil, Joliet, Ill.; and Michael Guillory, loss and prevention supervisor, Monsanto Agricultural Group, Luling, La.
There are 11 elected VPPPA Board of Directors members who serve two-year terms. The board meets quarterly to oversee the direction of the association.
