Like most non-profits, the Burn Prevention Network (BPN) is governed by an elected board of directors. This board is charged with the functions of policy and governance. It hires a chief executive officer whom it holds accountable for the management of those polices and the initiatives that they authorize.
The BPN has a long and distinguished history of maintaining a dedicated and active board of directors who represent many constituency groups associated with the pursuit of our mission. Most recently, the board elected four new directors. They are:
- Nancy Humes, MSN, RN – Nancy is the Director of Patient Care Services, Regional Burn Center, LVHN. She has been a member of the burn care team at LVHN since 1987.
- Cory Thatcher – Cory owns and manages Thatcher Benefits Planning, Inc., an insurance and benefits management business. In addition to Thatcher Benefits, he is a financial advisor with 1847Financial.
- Michelle Guenot – Michelle serves as the Manager, Online Services Group, Viamedia. She has had a distinguished career in marketing and media promotions, mostly in eastern PA and east coast markets.
- Kenneth Hawkinson, PhD – Ken is the President of Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. Ken was appointed President of KU on July 1, 2015. He began his career in higher education at Western Illinois University in 1988.
Welcome and “thanks for your service” to our new directors!
