The officers are Chairman Scott McCartney of Ascent Wealth Partners, Vice Chairman James Stewart of Stewart Consulting, LLC, Treasurer John Bullis, Dean Emeritus of MVCC, and Secretary Denise Snyder of NBT Bank.

Anne Bonsted, the newest member of the board, was appointed to a three year term.

She stays connected to BOCES as a member of the CTE Consultant Committee. Anne will add value to the Human Technologies Board through her knowledge and experience of teaching students with disabilities. A number of Anne’s students participated in internships at HT and during a recent tour she commented that, “She enjoyed seeing so many of the same employees still working for the organization.”

The newly elected officers have been actively involved with the Board of Directors over the past several years and share a combined board experience of 23 years.
