The board of the Business Incubator Association of NYS has added three new members to fill vacancies. The new board members are:
- Kathi Durdon, representing the Central New York Biotech Accelerator at SUNY Upstate Medical University;
- Matthew Draper, represening the incubator programs (including the North Country Innovation Hot Spot) at Clarkson University;
- Esther Vargas, representing the Emerging Ventures Ecosystem incubator and Tech Park at Renssselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
The full board is listed here. Elections to the board are held at each annual members’ meeting, but the board acts to fill vacancies directly when they occur during the year, usually due to a job change or promotion that results in a director no longer representing an incubator member of the association. Congratulations, Kathi, Matt, and Esther!
