Mark C. Yap

Unit 8 Director

 

Why are you running for office?

I’m running for BU08 Director to make a difference at the state Board of Directors level. I’d like to be able to collaborate with other bargaining unit directors to see how we can make HGEA better for our units that we represent and as an organization as a whole.

What are your goals?

In my tenure, I’d like to see how we can better recruit new members from the HGEA and employers side of the fence. The ball in our court to better collaborate and come up with ideas of signing up new members and keeping our current members in the union.
